About this product

Product Information

"Masterfully recreates all the heroism, tragedy and drama of a campaign whose lessons deserve far more attention." --General James R. Galvin, former Supreme Allied Commander, Europe In 1939, tiny Finland waged war-the kind of war that spawns legends-against the mighty Soviet Union, and yet their epic struggle has been largely ignored. 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 are the elements of both the Finnish victory and a gripping tale of war.

  • Motti, Sisu & the Heroic Finns

    I like how the chapters in the book are sorted and details in each battle. The air war chapter is among one of the most descriptive in war books. Among them, are the way in which the Finnish soldiers isolated the Red Army in mottis and let them starve to death in spite of being so outnumbered by the Red Army troops. This book states that motti tactics, such as the ones implemented at Suomussalmi, are still being taught at West Point. This was how the Finns were able to annihilate between 25,000 to 28,000 soldiers at the cost of 450 Finns

  • War summary and history of era, lacking small unit and individual tactics

    Easy read. Good historical information. Good overall war summary but does not go into small unit or individual soldier winter war tactics. Many points of bias against Russia but given situation this is somewhat justified.
