Overview

The Winter War. A nearly forgotten and overlooked event in the early days of the Second World War but an event that would have considerable impact on the military strategy and tactics for the Russian military. Without the war between Finland and Russia, World War II could have ended much differently.
The War itself was between two very mismatched nations; tiny Finland and the vast Russian state. And where many saw Finland only surviving against the Soviet might for only a few days, the Finnish Army brought the Soviet Army to its knees.
But why was Russia so interested in Finland? What aroused the admiration and heroic support of many nations for Finland? And why when the crisis arose, did the United States promise so much and deliver so little in terms of military aid and financial support to the Finns?
And have the consequences of those actions taken by the United States during the Winter War carried over into the post-9/11 era?
