“History has shown there are no invincible armies” Josef Vissarionovich Stalin
November 1939. Stalin has signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler and is focussing on reclaiming the former Grand Duchy of Finland. Alex Carlton is sent undercover as a Swedish newspaper correspondent to monitor the developing situation and report back to MI2, in London.
As soviet bombers drop their bombs on Helsinki, Alex arrives in Finland and soon finds himself embroiled in the political and military efforts of a small Baltic state facing the might of Russia. He is captivated by the sheer determination of the Finnish people, and the skill and mastery of their military leaders as they defend their country against overwhelming odds, inflicting devastating casualties on the Soviet aggressor.
For the 105 days the war lasted, Alex faces danger and risk, and after it is all over, he discovers that life is even more complicated when the country is at peace.
