At 10:30 A.M. on November 30, 1939, a formation of Russian bombers dropped from a cloud bank to unload a salvo of bombs on Helsinki, the capital city of Finland. The Winter War was underway. Overwhelming superiority in manpower and weapons ultimately prevailed, but not before Finland had written a saga of heroic resistance. It is this too-seldom-remembered story that William R. Trotter recounts in Fire and Ice. 16 pages of photographs.
