About The Book
Born a Soldier is a tour of the mid-20th century’s conflicts with the remarkable Larry Thorne. Capturing the « times » as well as the « life » of its protagonist, it is a journey with a truly amazing and colorful man. Born « Lauri Törni, » Thorne fought in Finland’s first to last battles with Russia winning the country’s equivalent of the Congressional Medal of Honor. As the legendary leader of one of the most elite companies in the Finnish army, one of the best armies of World War II, Thorne carried a price on his head, dead or alive, from the Red Army, reputedly the only Finnish soldier so singled out. When World War changed to Cold War, Thorne was a refugee, political prisoner, fugitive, exile, and illegal alien, and eventually gained legal status in the US through an Act of Congress. An early member of the Green Berets he was soon a legend there, too: the book The Green Berets’ first Vietnam hero, « Kornie » in Chapter One, the chapter that served as the basis for the movie.
