But while the rest of the world dithered, Finland was left alone to face the full might of the Soviet Army.The results of the conflict seemed a foregone conclusion. The Soviet Army was reputed to be the best in the world, and the Finns were outnumbered almost four to one. To everyones surprise, however, they pushed back against the Russians and became an international cause celebre. For 105 days, it looked as if they just might achieve the impossible and keep the huge Soviet Army at bay.In his new interpretation of this little-understood war, Robert Edwards describes one of the most doomed but valiant defenses since Thermopylae.

Despite eventual defeat, the geopolitical consequences were far reaching, as Nazi Germany watched the Soviet embarrassment from the sidelines.
