Winter War, The: The Border Conflict (cc)

"Recommended. This is a comprehensive documentary on the Winter War of WW II between the USSR and Finland. WW II enthusiasts will love this production. Russian history refers to this war as a "border conflict," portraying Finland as the aggressor. The narration explains that it was, in fact, a Soviet invasion. The collection of archival footage of this era is very impressive and shows that a great amount of work was put into collecting data to support the script. The conversion of still photos was also well done." -VRG Review
"Recommended. This is an excellently crafted documentary that includes the stories of two actual participants - one from each side - in the Winter War between Russia and Finland." -National Media Review
War. For people to fight against each other; to try to conquer each other; to kill each other for whatever the cause, there is always two sides. That is the structure of this ageless documentary that looks at The Winter War, the World War II conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland through the now-elderly eyes of two former participants, Ivan Fydorovich Daneschenko, a former soldier for the USSR, and Sael Laverman, a former soldier for the Finnish Army. The Soviets, who dubbed the war, a "border conflict," greatly outnumbered the Finns in troops, aircraft and tanks and began their invasion on November 30, 1939; however, the Finns dug in and the hostilities lasted much longer than the Soviets expected, ending on March 30, 1940 with the Moscow Peace Treaty. Finland ceded 11% of its pre-war territory and 30% of its economic assets to the USSR; it ended up being the only democracy that did not join the Allies in the fight against Nazi Germany, but too many in the international community praised the Finns for having defended their homeland and retaining their sovereignty. Produced by Patrick Oras and Film'O AV Productions. 02/08/CC JSCA 60 min.
