Article – Red Dawn in Lapland

Interesting article on how there’s been a bit of resurgence in the desire, among some small countries, to renew their military preparations against invasion.

Finland shares an 833-mile border with an aggressive and unpredictable neighbor. That proximity led to a major conflict during World War II—the horrific Winter War—and even now it keeps Finns nervous about Russia’s intentions. David Wolman suited up to train with the elite soldiers who will be on the front lines if this cold feud ever gets hot.

The Finns arent the only ones keeping eye on how the wind is blowing. The Estonians, too, are doing similar things.

  1. Just read about the most sucessful sniper was from that conflict. Am not too sure machine gunning groups around a fire qualify as “sniping”.
