Mainila: Mainila is a village located in Russia. But one day it happened a little konfliktoch then became four Soviet soldiers were killed. The Soviet Union wanted to know who was behind this murder and those investigated but eventually put them blame on Finland, but the Finnish authorities denied the Soviets said. This happened November 26, 1939.

The Soviet Union attacked them on 30 November and the war ended after four months and it was March 14, 1940.

War: a hard morning Finns have experienced November 30 when the Soviet army was also called the Red Army attacked Finland with their tanks, planes. Finnish army was not as strong as the Red Army, they had not as much equipment and soldiers.
Red army: 460,000 men, 1,500 tanks and about a 1000 aircraft.
Finnish army of 200 000 men, 32 tanks and some 119 aircraft.
But Finland did not give in and chose to fight but they chose a different approach, and it was to them to defend than to attack the opponents to them knew they had no chance. Finns as adept at aiming. in Europe and they could hide in many area, such as forests and vast lakes. So it was a little dicey for the Red Army. The Finns wanted to defend that the war would be a while, and they can withstand the cold weather more than the Soviet soldiers. Soviet troops attacked first Ladoga and Pechenga but later attacked them with aircraft capital Helsinki and the city of Vyborg. Finnish people were frightened and refused to stay in Helsinki that approximately 100 000 people left the capital. The bombs that made people became frightened and dropped some 100 000 bombs and about 1,000 bombs were directed against civilians. Approximately 1000 people died and 2000 were injured. The Soviet Union had an agreement with Estonia and it was good for Russia, for then could those attacking Finland from the south. So on the same day captured Red Army to a city of Finland and the town was called Terijoki. The Finns were surprised when the Soviets attacked them from the east by as Finnish army had to fight from the East with but those expecting that the Red Army would come to

ödmarksvägarna so they can be fixed and the Finnish army succeeded in killing 4000 soldiers and imprisoned 600 soldiers from the opponents.

On 7 December, there was a new battle but it was not so difficult for Soviet soldiers. Finnish army burned the village where there was a battle to the Red Army would not be able to hide somewhere and Finnish army to baked over two islands named Niskanselkä and Haukiperä. The next day it was a very difficult battle for both sides. Finnish Army received a major assault by a large Soviet soldier group had about 45 000 men and the other one had only 11,000 but the Finnish Army did well and crushed opponents. About 900 died from the Finnish side and 27,000 from the other side but the Finnish army also captured 85 tanks, 537 trucks, 1,620 horses, 138 guns and 6,000 rifles so you could say that it crushed the Soviet soldiers that day.

The Finns could not celebrate the new year because of what is happening and the first month of the new year it was quiet from both sides. The Soviet Union changed the army commander Yakovlev out against Timoshenko. Both countries started to practice more because you did not know when to get a new attack. February 1, 1940 attacked the Red Army Finns again but those Finnish army could fight, but after 10 days of fighting could the Red Army to win against them, and crossing the line built by both the fighting, it was kind a line that divided between them and called Mannerheim Line. Sweden wanted to help Finland in any way that they took care of the Finnish children but 27 February came a few men from Sweden, Norway and Denmark to stand by the Finnish side and Sweden had given to Finland 84 000 guns, 104 anti-aircraft guns and 32 aircraft .

Soviet troops could not come to Finland with their U-boats to the Baltic Sea was frozen, but Sweden could donate items to Finland through a road that was named Quark traffic but in Finland, called them the way of the Milky Way.

Then began the Finns have contact with France and Britain, and the two countries offered Finland to something if they need help Finland in 22 000 soldiers and firearms from the United Kingdom and France. But Sweden will not send troops to Finland to fight for them thought that it was not a good position to send troops to them remembered his country. But Finland fought anyway, so the isthmus was 8:08 a.m. Finnish divisions against 22 Soviet which was difficult for Finland, but in Ladoga so obliterated Finnish army on the 18th and the 34th Soviet division. But the Finnish army was afraid that they would continue to attack the other divisions due to firearms that were on the west, which meant that the Soviet army was going to conquer the land. Finland could not manage more war against the Soviet Union went Finland, Karlstad Minister to Moscow and try to talk to the Soviet side, Filand had to let some cities like Vyborg, Kexholm and some to be for the Soviet Union and then wrote them an agreement that they would stop War and the agreement the 12 March and the day after, it became a stop on all the battles.

Since then, Finland started to cooperate with Germany ruled by Hitler. They collaborated with them that they would receive help if something should happen.
Children: several thousand children in Finland lost their parents as they were sent to Sweden for someone to take care of them and there were about 70 000 children and about 10 000 of them were adopted into Swedish families. One of those children who lost their parents is one of the best cross-country skiers, and he was called Toini Gustafsson

I chose to write about the Finnish Winter War because I was interested in this war and I wanted to do research and learn more about this and I think in my opinion that I have succeeded and got the information I need and want and hope that the work went well.

USSR: Soviet Union was created after the civil war in the country between the Red Army and the white, it was in 1918-1922. White army consisted of several parts and it was socialisms, nationalists and some parties have even their thoughts were that it wanted Russia to become independent and they got the help and support of 22 countries. In 1919, the war between Russia and Poland, but Russia lost the war, but the Red Army crushed the White Army during the civil war. The Soviet Union was 22.4 million km2 and it lived 288.6 million inhabitants. The country was so large that it was both in Asia and Europe but Moscow was the capital of the European part. Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik party in Russia after the revolution that was in Russia and he was chairman of the Council of Peoples Commissars in 1917 until he died and that was in 1924. It was he and other Soviet republics who created the Soviet Union and the official language would be Russian. 1918 made peace with Germany, and then have them changed many things so Orthodox Church should be separated from the school and the state. And in the same year that killed them Emperor's family in Russia on the grounds that he had made crimes against the Russian people. 1924 Lenin died and it was two after he competed with each Trotsky believed in world revolution, and the other was Stalin who would defend the Soviet Union that they would resist socialisms still. 1929 was named Stalin a dictator of the Soviet Union. Then he started to improve the country with industry so that the economy improved the majority begin to move to the industrial cities. He also planned a 5 year plan asså how the economy would look like in five years. 1929 worked collaborated Germany and the Soviet Union in black as France did not know what they were doing, Germans and Soviets have agreed with each other that it would share in Poland and it was a protocol to the Soviet Union and Germany would share with each other, eastern Europe and that again would mix about Hitler attacking Poland so he attacked Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, and after about two weeks went by Soviet army into Poland and conquered the eastern part, then attacked them Finldand 30 November 1939 and ended in 1940. Then began Stalin renovates and improving the army so he got a surprise and it was when he had an attack of Germany and it was June 22, 1941. I think I have written enough now so I can finish this little essay by the Soviet Union was dissolved in December 26, 1991 .

Stalin: Joseph Stalin was born on 18 decemer in 1878 in Georgia. He was a politician of the Soviet Union, then he was a secretary there and when Lenin died, he got to be a leader of the Soviet Union, it was 1924. Stalin tanks water that Russia or the Soviet Union would become a famous industrial country. Stalin, also fought against Hitler when he attacked him and Stalin never thought that Hitler would attack him and Germany lost the war after bloody difficult days. Stalin had a difficult childhood, his father was alcoholism and shoemakers. He lost his father when he was eleven. Stalin studied in church schools who smiled in his hometown and he did it well and his thought was that he was a priest. He went into the social party and got to say his ideas, but what he said was that he was fired from the school and was chased by the emperor's soldiers. Although he was in a bad situation, and the police chased him but he planned bank robbery, demonstrations but finally got them caught him and he ended up in prison, he was exiled seven times and he managed to escape five times. When he walked out of prison, he became a member of the Bolshevik Party, it was 1912. He then worked in a newspaper called Pravda and after the Revolution of October, he became People's Commissar for Nationalities Affairs in the government. Lenin, who was leader of the Soviet Union, his health began to get worse and worse, so in the end he died, and as we said before Stalin became the leader of the Soviet Union. Stalin died March 5, 1953 and was buried in Moscow.

Finland: Finland had a very difficult history, one can say the country was part of Sweden, and then conquered by Russia in the 1800s. So that their language was not officially in the country. In a book called (sjubröder) written by Aleksis Kivi told him how the Finns suffer, they want their own country, their own kick and own government and parliament as they were able to determine the laws themselves instead of other countries would decide how and what they should do. Finland was conquered by the Russian Tsar Nicolaj Bobrikov and he was shot June 16, 1904 in fairy Finland, the main state Helsinki by a student named Eugen Schauman and then graduated suicide. Since then Finland got their rights and Schauman became a hero in the Finnish history. After all, it was relaunched in Finland as was the choice and the women got the vote and 17 women were elected to work in the danger day. 1917 Russia became independent, but for myself constantly of so do not come any pariter in Finland agree on anything so it was a civil war in the country. Around 70 000 died occh after the Civil War did the three wars between Finland, Germany and the Soviet Union, two wars against the Soviets and against Germany. 1982 began the new president of Finland Mauno Koivisto working carefully until the Soviet Union dissolved and Finland blv member of the EU in 1995 with Sweden and Austria.
