My grand father fought that war, he told me that it was senseless campaign and he never was proud that he had a part in it..., "Finns were really good at killing us, they killed us like little pigs in a Slaughterhouse...".

I've been in Karelia in December 2003, beautiful place, endless spruce forest with A LOT OF SNOW :thumbup:
All road signs written in Russian and Finnish, some older people still speak Finnish only... Once we were stopped in a middle of highway at night because of HUGE MOOSE had decided to walk along the highway and was not in a hurry to hide in woods...)))) We were looking at him & he was looking at us & we did not want him to walk away... :shock:

After this war, knifes with pointed nose are called "Finnka" in Russia, because every Finnish soldier had such knife and they did not hesitate to use it in close combat.

It's always sad at all the untold human costs of war. I found it interesting that the Finns were using German helmets and equipment, the Russians signed a treaty with the Germans then attacked the Finns who were supplied by the Germans.

I've never understood the desire to throw wave after wave of your men at a position that is so well intrenched, It's such a waste. The one thing that PBS did not go into detail about was the Finnish Snipers were taking a huge toll on the Russians.
