Fire and Ice
In September, 1939, German Chancellor Adolph Hitler and Russian dictator Joseph Stalin carved up Poland after signing the Molotov-Ribbontrop Pact. Its secret protocols gave Stalin free rein to take Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland into the Soviet sphere of influence. The Baltic nations quickly caved in to Soviet threats and were occupied. Stalin expected the same when he turned his attention to Finland. There was just one problem... Finland refused Soviet demands and fought back. When the bitterly cold winter of 1939-1940 was over, hundreds of thousands of Red Army troops lay dead on battlefields that were truly a frozen hell. Led by Field Marshal Mannerheim, Finland's Army brutally punished the Soviet forces. The German leader, Adolph Hitler, watching the Winter War from the sidelines, then made a judgment that changed the course of history.
