The White Death: The Epic of the Soviet-Finnish Winter War

Frontcover

1 Rezension

The 105-day war between Finland and the Soviet Union in the winter of 1939-1940 has been overshadowed by the larger conflicts of the Second World War, which followed closely after it. The courageous resistence of the only neighbor of Stalin's Russia, which fought the Red Army and survived as a free and independent nation merits this closer look. Although the diplomatic background of the Winter War has been covered before, this is the first substantial English-language study of its dramatic military encounters.

Review: The White Death: The Epic of the Soviet-Finnish Winter War

Nutzerbericht  - David - Goodreads

This book complimented the other book I read about the Russo-Finnish Winter War of 1939 (A Frozen Hell). Both gave a good overview of the war. Vollständige Rezension lesen
