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.

  1. Considering the fact that no FT-17 saw action except dug-in as MG bunkers, the cover is a bit fanciful.

    Might still be a good book, authors seldom have much say in cover design. Please report what you think of it as I am always looking for new books about the Winter War.

  2. There are a couple of decent drama videos available. They are by Scanbox Entertainment: The Winter War and Ambush 1941.

  3. Yes I'd read that somewhere too. Bit of a shame as I have an FT17 model knocking about somewhere.

    Thanks for the heads up on the videos!
