The Winter War was a military conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland. It began with a Soviet invasion of Finland on 30 November 1939, three months after the outbreak of World War II, and ended three and a half months later on 13 March 1940. Finland repelled Soviet attacks for more than two months and inflicted substantial losses on the invaders while temperatures ranged as low as −43 °C. After the Soviet military reorganised and adopted different tactics, they renewed their offensive in February and overcame Finnish defences.
Often in battle the Finns would use guerrilla tactics. The Red Army was superior in numbers and materiel, but Finns used the advantages of speed, manoeuvre warfare and economy of force. The Finns would isolate smaller portions of numerically superior Soviet forces, and when they were divided into smaller groups, the Finns dealt with them individually and attacked from all sides in the pocket (motti).
The Suomi KP/-31 (Suomi-konepistooli or "Finland-submachine gun") was a submachine gun (SMG) of Finnish design. The Suomi KP/-31 is regarded by many as one of the most successful submachine guns of World War II, also the soon developed 71-round drum magazine was later copied and adopted by the Soviets for their PPD-40 and PPSh-41 submachine guns.
