Winter War Finnish Ski Trooper
Ski troops played a key role in the successes of the Finnish war effort against the Soviet Union during the Winter War in 1939. Forested, rural terrain with no roads was used by Finnish ski troops with great success against the advancing mechanised Soviet troops. In the Battle of Suomussalmi, two Soviet mechanised divisions (45,000 men) were annihilated by three Finnish regiments (11,000 men).
