This war is modern version of David versus Goliath. The Sabaton song 'Talvisota' is about the Winter War that took place in late 1939 till the early spring of 1940 between Finland and the Soviet union. Against all odds, and an overwhelming amount of Red Army Soldiers, the Finnish army manage to hold off the Soviet advance for longer than anyone could have foreseen.

Sabaton History

This week marks 79 years since the Winter War ended. On 13 March 1940, the guns in Finland stopped shooting after over three months of heavy fighting. The Finns fought better and harder than anyone expected, of course with help from numerous factors. Make sure to check out Indy's World War Two channel, where he covers World War Two exactly 79 years after it went down, in realtime. It's very cool 🤘 -> www.youtube.com/c/worldwartwo

"(Molotov) said that soviet bombers would drop food supplies and not bombs" But being in a commie state the pilots never saw food, so they didn't know the difference

The Finnish educational system is routinely ranked as one of the world's finest, and heavy metal is a mainstream, as opposed to a niche, genre there. Coincidence? I think not.

What a testament to brilliant Finnish strategy utilizing their terrain and their enemy who underestimated them. It really is reassuring to know a small but dedicated country could hold off such a massive military power such as Russia. I love the will of the Finn's!

Recently at school we had a project where we had to pick a song and tell what it is about, I did the lost battalion. Keep up the great work.

5 hours ago I thought to myself "There will be no Sabaton History for Talvisota because no one remembers Finland". God has listened.

Shows you how much you can get done with enough tenacity and knowledge of the home turf. Always love hearing about the Winter War.

A soviet commander was marching through finland when he heard "one finnish soldier could take 10 soviet men" so he sent 10 men, never to return. "one finnish soldier can take 100 soviet men" so he sent 100 men, never to return. "One finnish soldier can take 1000 soviet men" so he sent 1000 men, one returned mortally wounded "Don't send any more! There's two of them!"

I'm pretty sure the Finns said something like, "A drink to go with the bread" about the Molotov Cocktails.

I think you could have done the episode merging it also with "White death". You are in the sniper's sight The first kill tonight Time to die! You are in the bullet's way The White Death's prey Say goodbye!

If you attack against Finland, you attack against the nature itself.
