Omtale Finnish Military Effectiveness in the Winter War, 1939-1940
This book
analyzes the multi-faceted
phenomenon of Finnish military effectiveness in the Winter War
(1939-40). Drawing
on a wide array of primary and secondary sources, Pasi Tuunainen shows
how by focusing on their own strengths and pitting these against the
weaknesses of their adversary, the Finns were able to inflict heavy casualties
on the Red Army whilst minimizing their own losses. The Finns were able to use their
resources for effective operational purposes, and perform almost to their full
potential. The Finnish
small-unit tactics utilized the terrain and Arctic conditions for which they
had prepared themselves, as well as forming cohesive units of well-motivated
and qualitatively better professional leaders and citizen soldiers who could
innovate and adapt. The Finnish Army had highly
effective logistics, support and supply systems that kept the troops fighting.
