"Talvisota" as written by Joakim Broden and Par Sundstrom....
Rise of nations pride

Russians on a route to ruin Kremlin is more then certain to win
Sent away an army to the west

Blizzard reigned the ground were chosen
Snow was deep and hell were frozen
Stalin were too eager to invade

He thought of the might he possessed
And not of his foe
Rage of winter

Rise, nations pride
Hold what's yours
Strike 'em were it hurts

Fight, hold your ground
Winter war
Reinforce the line

Split them into small divisions
Rip 'em of the conquest visions
Motti tactics used with great result

Snipers move unseen in snowfall
Force them to retreat and recall
Fight the Russian rule and their demand

With Molotov cocktail in hand
No fear of their tanks
Death or glory

Rise, nations pride
Hold what's yours
Strike 'em were it hurts

Fight, hold your ground
Winter war
Reinforce the line

A slice of a knife to a throat
And their blood turns to ice
Talvisota!

Rise, nations pride
Hold what's yours
Strike'em were it hurts

Fight, hold your ground
Winter war
Reinforce the line

Rise, nations pride
Hold what's yours
Strike 'em were it hurts

Fight, hold your ground
Winter war
Reinforce the line

    General CommentThe Winter War of 1939/1940. The Soviet Union invaded Finland, greatly superior in both manpower and equipment. After several months of heavy losses and no significant territorial gains they had to negotiate a peace treaty

    General CommentTalvisota actually means "Winter War" in Finnish

    Its worth noting that while the Soviets suffered great losses, the Finn's were still forced to surrender, though they gave up much less than had been feared.
    Britain had plans to interfere, which would have brought them into war with the Soviet Union

    General CommentDude, we didn't surrender, it was a treaty. You as a native English speaker should know what that means.

    General CommentFrom the farewell order of Field Marshal Gustav Mannerheim to the soldiers of the Finnish Army:

    "Soldiers! I have fought on many battlefields, but never have I seen your like as warriors! ... After sixteen weeks of bloody combat, with no rest day or night, our army stands unconquered before an enemy whose strength has grown in spite of terrible losses.

    ...Our fate is hard, now that we are compelled to surrender to an alien race land which for centuries we have cultivated with our labor and sweat. ...Yet we must put our shoulders to the wheel, in order that we may prepare, on the soil left to us, a home for those rendered homeless, and a better life for all; and, as before, we must be ready to defend our undivided homeland.

    We are proudly consious of our historic duty, which we shall continue to fulfill: the defense of western civilization which has been our heritage for centuries. But we also know that we have paid, to the last penny, any debt we have owed to the west.

    ...That an army so inferior in numbers and equipment, should have inflicted such seriour defeats on an overwhelmingly powerful enemy, and, while retreating, have over and over again repelled his attacks, is a thing for which it is hard to find a parallel in the history of war. But it is equally admirable that the Finnish people, face to face with an apparently hopeless situation, were able to resit giving in to despair, and instead to grow in devotion and greatness.

    Such a nation has earned the right to live."

    Translation by William R. Trotter in his book "A Frozen Hell"(1991).
