Re-enact a war that typically merits only a footnote in history books. For 105
days, the tiny nation of Finland put up a fanatical defense against the vast
manpower of the Soviet army. In the end, the overwhelming number of Soviet
troops and tanks sent into Finland forced the Finns to sue for peace. Winter War
is a tactical level simulation of this conflict using the Squad Battles system.
On the morning of November 30th, 1939, Soviet medium bombers attacked the
Finnish capital of Helsinki and their men and material surged across the border
to try to crush the overmatched Finnish military, but they were ill-prepared for
the frozen land. The Finns fought bravely, using their knowledge of the land,
and pulling from their fierce national pride.
