The Badass Finns27 May 2009 2 Comments
Why? because of 2 reasons.
On November 30th 1939, the Soviet Union attacked Finland with the intention of conquering it. The Soviet Union had 4 times as many soldiers, 30 times as many aircraft and 218 times as many tanks.
What the Russians thought will be a quickie, lasted all winter till march 12th 1940 and both signed the Moscow Peace Treaty when the Finns gave up 9% of there land and 20% of their industrial capacity.
During this short lived war, the Soviet Union preformed so poorly that Adolf Hitler thought he might take a swing at them him self.
So for every 1 dead finn there was 3 dead Russian, and for every 1 captured Finn there was 40 captured Russians. The Finns killed more than 80,000 soldiers, more than 700 of those were killed by one man….
2. Simo Hayha
Ya I know, the dude doesn’t look that scary but he has the coolest real world nickname, “White Death”, because of his white camouflage that he used to wear in -40 degrees temperatures while killing hundreds of Russians all in 100 days of war.
The Russians literally tried everything to stop Simo, including sending a whole task force after him, a team of counter snipers and artillery. He either killed all of them or just chewed off there heads.
On March 6th he was shot in the face with an exploding bullet Crushing his jaw and blowing of half his face BUT NOT KILLING HIM, this guy was so badass he had bullets for breakfast, literally.
He died many many years later, April 2002
