About this product
- DescriptionThis authoritative account of the 105-day war between Finland and the Soviet Union in the early stages of World War II focuses on the human side of the story, particularly the bravery and heroism of the Finns who fought the Red Army tenaciously and held out far longer than anyone expected. With overwhelming superiority in men and equipment, the Soviet Union invaded Finland in November 1939 but soon bogged down against winter conditions and fierce Finnish resistance. Finland was finally forced to surrender in March 1940, but t before impressing the world with its efforts and highlighting the weakness of the Red Army.
