DESCRIPTION: This book is an innovative approach to an important 
and under-covered episode of military history. The text is in 
English and Swedish with outstanding images– Highly Recommended.

This book is aimed firmly at the modellers and model engineers, 
providing excellent illustration. In this readership, the innovative 
presentation works extremely well and provides a study of scale 
plastic models, built by semi-professional and amateur modellers. 
However, it will also appeal to a wider readership because its 
subject is the sequence of three wars that were fought by Finland 
between 1939 and 1945 against Soviet attempts to annex Finland. This 
is a part of recent military history that has not been covered very 
well and where good quality images of the equipment involved are rare.

At the beginning, Russia was allied with Nazi Germany and Finland was 
supplied and assisted by Britain and other European countries. When 
Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union, Finland was supported by the 
Nazis and received arms and supplies from Germany, making for a very 
interesting selection of equipment available to Finnish Defence 
Forces.

Each model covered by the book is treated to a 4 to 8 page section 
that illustrates the subjects in full colour and explains the 
historical relevance of the subjects. This makes for a fascinating 
collection of aircraft, tanks, vehicles and soldiers, featuring 
unique camouflage and marking that will provide modellers with a 
very useful range of ideas.

An excellent work and the first volume to become available from a 
planned series that has already attracted strong interest from the 
international model-making community.
