I bought the book in 88-89 read it and some years later I saw a two-part series on TV.

Now when a new remake have been made for cinema I thought it could be interesting to read the book again.

A good account of the events of 1939-40. Volume two details the Continuation and Lapland Wars - one of the few books in English to do so.

Mike.
Got both of the books yesterday (English versions). From the little I've had chance to read them they appear to be very well written. The "sin" of foreign writers who've written books about the Finno-Russo wars is oversimplifying things, which is definitely not what you get with these books. The reader is introduced to the topic with lots of photos, commander bios (both sides), maps and diary entries both official and personal.

Just finished reading The Unseen Olympic, part of a series of books by The History Press on the famous ocean liners of the early 20th century. I've really enjoyed all the books in the series...but this one is borderline terrible. Workmanlike text, well-known photographs, and more than a quarter of the pictures aren't even of the Olympic!

I've written a more in-depth review if anyone's interested:
