Winter War Soviet Infantry

Minifig printed on genuine brand new LEGO parts using a high quality UV printing method. 

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. 

Soviet soldiers were often freezing, starving and enduring poor sanitary conditions. The Soviet soldier in the Winter War endured tremendous hardship. If he refused to fight, he would be shot. If he tried to sneak through the forest, he would freeze to death. And surrender was no option for him; Soviet propaganda had told him how the Finns would torture prisoners to death.
