TANKS IN THE WINTER WAR 1939-1940 Operations: Scandinavia


The Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland three months after the outbreak of WW2 and ended three and a half months later with the Moscow Peace Treaty. Despite superior military strength, especially in tanks and aircraft, the Soviet Union suffered severe losses and initially made little headway. The poor performance of the Red Army encouraged German Chancellor Adolf Hitler to believe that an attack on the Soviet Union would be successful and confirmed negative Western opinions of the Soviet military.The book has high-quality colour tank drawings plus pages containing specifications of the tanks involved.
