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…
