SKU: 956 Categories: ,


By Harald Hesstvedt Scharnhorst. People came to America to build a new life for themselves, in the process creating one of the most remarkable experiments in national development and self-government in the history of mankind. Knut Scharnhorst Hesstvedt brought his family to these United States in 1949. He was disappointed that evil bureaucrats had taken power in Norway. For five long years he had given both his money and time to the Norwegian “Hjemmefront” (Underground) to liberate his nation. This is his family’s story in Europe and America in both war and peace, as seen through the eyes of his son—a story whose lessons are just as applicable to us today as they were then.
