    Well home field advantage is more important during war.... I dare say if you took those Finns to the jungles of Vietnam they would not be much better than any other troops... including Vietnamese fighters taken to Finland.

    Of course the same could be said of the Soviet soldiers of the time.

    The Germans on the other hand were a well disciplined and reasonably well equipped force in 1939... much like the Soviets were in 1944-45...

    The Germans probably would have been rather more successful in Finland than the Soviets were...

    But does that make them more civilised or less civilised?
