Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 094557522X, Hardcover)At 10:30 A.M. on November 30, 1939, a formation of Russian bombers dropped from a cloud bank to unload a salvo of bombs on Helsinki, the capital city of Finland. The Winter War was underway. Overwhelming superiority in manpower and weapons ultimately prevailed, but not before Finland had written a saga of heroic resistance. It is this too-seldom-remembered story that William R. Trotter recounts in Fire and Ice. 16 pages of photographs.

In 1939, tiny Finland waged war-the kind of war that spawns legends-against the mighty Soviet Union, and yet their epic struggle has been largely ignored. Guerrillas on skis, heroic single-handed attacks on tanks, unfathomable endurance, and the charismatic leadership of one of this century's true military geniuses-these are the elements of both the Finnish victory and a gripping tale of war.
