This book recounts experiences that impacted the lives of
Finnish-Americans during the turbulent years 1910-1950. During that period,
Finnish-Americans were lured to the Soviet Union, participated in the Spanish Civil war
and took part in the legendary "Winter War" on both sides.
Russians used Finnish-Americans as spies against Finland during WWII
and against the US during the "Cold War."
The Russians got a bitter taste of their own medicine when
Finnish-American Frank Friberg became CIA chief in Helsinki. He facilitated the defection
of a KGB major whose spilling of the beans caused panic in both Moscow and Helsinki.
Interesting history and shocking events are exposed by retelling the experiences of
intriguing people who are part of Finnish-American heritage.
