Never under estimate a people that want to defend their culture and homeland.

Holding out for three months against the might of the Soviet War Machine is not bad.

Of course you cannot discuss the Winter War without discussing The White Death, Simo Hayha.

History has proven time and time again, that to produce deadly snipers and soldiers, nothing can replace the self-sufficient and practical hunting/gun culture in which they were raised.

Their prowess with a rifle was directly related to their upbringing and the traditions handed down from their fathers.

Nothing could be a better teacher than that!
