The 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, 1500 tanks and about a 1000 aircraft.

Finnish army: 200 000 men, 32 tanks and around 119 aircraft.

But Finland did not want to give up and chose to fight but they chose another approach and that was that they would defend than to attack the opponents to them knew they had no chance. The Finns what adept at aiming. in Europe and they could hide in many field such as forests and large lakes. So it was a little dicey for the Red Army. The Finns wanted to defend that war would be a while, and they can withstand the cold weather more than Soviet soldiers. Soviet troops attacked the first Ladoga and Petsamo but later attacked them with aircraft capital Helsinki and the city of Vyborg. Finnish people were frightened and refused to live in Helsinki so about 100 000 people left the capital. The bombs that made people became afraid and it dropped some 100 000 bombs and approximately 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 because then they could attack Finland from the south.

Approximately 900 who died from the Finnish side and 27,000 from 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. Soviet Union changed its army commander Yakovlev out against Timoshenko. Both countries began to exercise more because you did not know when they would get a new attack. February 1, 1940 attacked the Red Army Finns again but those Finnish army could fight but after 10 days of battle could the Red Army win against them and cross the line built by both the fighting, it was kind a line that divided between them and one was called Mannerheim Line.

But Sweden would not send troops to Finland to war to them thought that it was not a good location to send troops to them remembered his country. But Finland fought anyway, so the Isthmus, it was 8:08 a.m. Finnish divisions against 22 Soviet which was a pain 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 other divisions due to firearms that were on the west which made the Soviet army was going to conquer the country. Finland could not manage more war against the Soviet Union went Finland, the City minister to Moscow and try to talk to the Soviet side, Filand had to let some cities like Vyborg, Kexholm and some to be the Soviet Union and then wrote them an agreement that they would stop War and the agreement was March 12th and the day after it became a stop on all battles.
