“For a real communist, countries don’t exist – there are only people.”In Search of A Revolution by Christoph Fischer is another great book that captivated my attention right away. I have read several of this author’s books and all have resonated with me in their own way. He writes with great passion and authority. They are mind-blowing reads that are all well-written, precise and more than anything effortless to get into. This latest book is no exception. This takes you to another place and time but feels familiar and comfy. A book that is not easy to put down once you have started. I was so immersed in the life of Zacharias, Ansgar and Raisa.

From the start I was totally hooked. There is so much heart that I was caught up with emotion as I read with great vigor and interest. This story is filled with lies, deceit, and big drama. The suspense had me holding on, quickening my pace, reading is a fury! Loved the mystery that was In Search of A Revolution!

“Just imagine what the world will be like in a few years if we succeed? There won’t be any class differences and no divide between rich and poor. You’ll look at a man and you won’t have to worry how to address him and how to pay him the respect that society demands for his status. Everyone will get respect and address in the same fair manner, nobody will have more than their neighbour and there won’t be any more need for crimes. Nobody will look down on a farmer like you. How is that not worth fighting for?”

Christoph is amazing! I am glad he has decided to do another historical novel! In this book, we meet Zacharias, a young man from a wealthy family, and his best friend, Angsar who is the son of a pig farmer. The story takes place between Denmark and Finland at the time of WWII. These two unlikely friends both want the best for their people. Zacharias believes everyone is equal and is quickly enchanted with the ideals of communism by his charismatic teacher Beck. Angsar wants the monarchy to continue and bring peace. Zacharias goes to Finland to help the Red Guard fight to create a communistic state in Finland. The White Guard wants to return to the monarchy and has asked Germany to aid them to defeat the Red Guard. We meet Raisa, a Finnish nurse, when Zacharias is injured during the Red Guard’s defeat. She just wants to live in peace and have a home. She tries to seduce Zacharias and he tells her that he will never love her. Angsar comes to Finland because of a scandal he is involved in after he joins the army in Denmark. He finds Raisa and moves in while Zacharias has returned home to Denmark to find his way. copenhagen-237561_640The story unfolds as each man faces the truth of their convictions and realizes there is no right answer. Amazing detail about the times and the pitfalls of blindly following any ideology.

Great book!

In Search of A Revolution
Christoph Fischer 1970364_10151968312536960_1915037163_nIn Search of A Revolution is a superb work from a great writer of historical fiction.

The creative genius of Fischer always excels with each book as fans of his other works will only know too well. The dynamics involved with the author’s writing are exceptional.

Zacharias and Angsar are extremely well written characters and readers of WWII, the Red Guard, Communists, Fascists and political issues will be captivated by the wonderful story-telling.

A compelling read!


In 1918 young Zacharias Nielsen boards a ship in Copenhagen to join the Red Guards in the Finnish Civil War.Encouraged by an idolised teacher with communist leanings, he follows the call for help from his Nordic Comrades, despite his privileged background.

His best friend, Ansgar, has opposing political ideals to Zacharias but, for his own personal reasons, finds himself soon stuck in the Scandinavian North with Zacharias and Raisa, a Finnish nurse who helps them in their new life.

Through the years that follow the brotherly war the trio see the political landscape in Finland and Europe change as Communists and Fascists try to make their mark and attempt to change the world order.

Our heroes must find their own personal and ideological place in these turbulent times as friendship, honour, idealism and love triangles bring out some personal truths.

The book spans almost thirty years of history and the various Finnish conflicts: Civil War, Winter War, Continuation War and the Lapland War. Watch the political and personal self discovery of characters in search of their own revolution.
