The Winter War – Finland does not Forget!

Lets look at a video and touch on the subject of history: This history is about “The Winter War” on November 30, 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Finland. It was a war Russia would rather forget, while Finland wants to keep the memory alive. Finns are commemorating the 70th anniversary of the start of the Winter War against the Soviet Union.

I have read a little bit about this war today and watched the video. Seems the Finns showed that with determination that you can defend against a bigger enemy!

My question is why Finland? (I have read all the reasons but really – Why Finland?)

The Soviet Union seemed big enough in size…

Windows to Russia!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
