Winter War is the story of the 100 day war of Finland against the Soviet Union at the dawn of World War II. Sniper Tero Toivanent answers the call from his homeland, Finland, when it’s attacked by the USSR, which seeks a buffer zone against Nazi Germany aggression in Europe. Although the Soviets anticipated a quick victory against the small Finnish army made up of largely citizen soldiers, the Finns used the advantage of their harsh winter to hold off the Soviets for an amazing four months. In this fictionalized account, but based on real situations, Tero and his allies, Niklas and Manu, are deployed to southern Finland to stop the Russian division attacking over the frozen Lake Hirvasjärvi. Seeing plenty of death and destruction and the hopelessness a Finnish winter can bring, the three get a taste of the true horrors of war. Will it be enough to freeze even their hearts, accustomed to the deepest cold? "...will tug at your morals, and your conscience." - Downriver Geek.

"...one of the better books I've read that really helps humanize war and soldiers." - Comixverse.
