There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Historical Background:
The Soviet-Finnish War of 1939-40 was brought about by Russia's enigmatic foreign policy of 1939. On the 24th of August of that year, Russia signed a non-aggression pact with Germany. On September 17th, Russian troops marched into Poland to claim a share of that country after it had been defeated by Germany. Shortly thereafter, Russia began to put pressure on her "lost provinces" in an effort to regain territory which she had lost in 1918. Finland refused to submit when presented with the Russian demands on 5 October 1939. On November 13th, the Soviet-Finnish diplomatic negotiations came to an end, and the Finnish delegates to Moscow returned to Helsinki. On November 30th, Russia attacked Finland.
