War of the White Death
The Winter War isn't a conflict I know that much about, beyond the usual stereotypes of plucky Finnish ski troops running rings around freezing Soviet soldiers deep in the snow clad forests of Finland. This means some reading is required, especially from a Russian perspective rather than just the Finnish side of the story, so this book looks really interesting. I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but if the content is as stirring as the artwork, I won't be disappointed.
