Life in the Finnish Army
Here you will find articles detailing the experience of the Finnish soldier in World War II. The Finnish soldier's experience in the Second World War is unique in that it resembled more the stalemate on the Western Front than anything else happening on the Eastern Front. He lived in muddy trenches, on a rotation schedule, with little activity beyond the occasional trench raid. Death was always just around the corner, yet real combat was rare, so a Finnish soldier spent much of his time simply keeping busy, usually by maintaining his trench or cleaning his weapon.
