A frozen hell : the Russo-Finnish winter war of 1939-1940 by William R Trotter( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in Finnish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book of battles -- savagely fought, often with great heroism on both sides, under brutal, subarctic conditions. Guerrillas on skis, heroic single-handed attacks on tanks, unfathomable endurance, and the charismatic leadership of one of this century's true military geniuses -- these were the elements of Finland's short-lived victory. For all the epic resistance of the Finns, the outcome was foreordained. Belatedly the Russians realized that an expected easy triumph over a vastly outnumbered foe had become a slaughterhouse. Incompetent commanders were replaced, more and better troops were moved into position, and orders were given to overwhelm and crush the Finns by the sheer weight of massed numbers. But even though they lost on the battlefield, the Finns' pointed resistance kept the Iron Curtain from drawing closed around their land and allowed Finland to remain free, even as other countries fell one by one. - Back cover

The winter war, 1939-1940 : Finland's fight for independence( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Winter War of Finland was fought in 1939-40. Although it lasted for 105 days only, it is one of the most significant periods in Finnish history. Dark clouds had already been gathering in the sky of world politics a few years earlier. Referring to her own security interests, the Soviet Union demanded that Finland negotiate about certain exchanges of territory. Since an agreement was not reached, the Soviet Union crossed the eastern border of Finland on October 30, 1939. This video film is based on old archive records and it tells about the course of events which led to the outbreak of hostilities and particularly about the progress of the war up to the end of it. It is a tribute to the Finnish war veterans, who, with inadequate and old-fashioned equipment and partly with makeshift weapons, fought against an enemy far superior in number. --Container
