    Interesting picture from 1944 and the second Finnish – Soviet Union battles. This was a challenge to find information on this conflict as the Winter War of 1939-1940 had all the history buzz and if I understand about this conflict, the Soviets wanted more territory a second time. Sarah, you can find some interesting historical events to challenge your readers with.

      Yes, this second round of the Finnish-Soviet war doesn’t have the romantic allure of the Winter War, plus it was overshadowed by the events in Normandy. This truly was a world war, and I try to highlight unique aspects whenever possible.
