The frozen corpse of a Soviet soldier is shown after it was propped up by Finnish troops as a psychological message to the Red Army. Somewhere in eastern Finland, possibly in the Karelia region. Circa 1939. This was one of a series of very rare instances that happened in the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland, as the majority of troops on both sides were careful to respect the dead. Ceasefires were even organized sometimes so the two sides could search for bodies to bury, and commonly each party buried the dead of the opposing side. The Winter War happened due to the Soviet Union demanding a 30 year lease for the construction of a naval base and also that the Finns move the border between Russia and Finland back by 25 kilometers so as to make a buffer zone around Leningrad. Finland refused, and the Soviets attacked and triggered the beginning of the Winter War. The Finns were completely outmanned and severely outgunned, so they opted to have a defensive and guerrilla-like strategy to fight the Red Army. The weather during this war was the coldest ever in Finnish history, and casualties due to frostbite skyrocketed on both sides. The Finns did have more of an edge though as they had a lot of pre-war training, whereas the Red Army was more used to operating in the steppes of Russia and had already suffered extremely due to the loss of experienced generals during Stalin's Great Purge. The Red Army performed very poorly in this war and the Finns managed to fight off the Red Army for several months until the Soviets finally developed new tactics and began to push them back, despite suffering extreme losses. Hostilities finally ceased in March of 1940 and the Moscow Peace Treaty was signed, where Finland ceased territory representing 11% of its land area and 13% of its economy, but Finland still retained it's complete sovereignty. In contrast, the Soviet Union suffered a large hit to its international reputation, and although 25,900 Finns were killed and 66,000 in total were made casualties, a staggering 120,000 Soviets were killed in the war, with a total of over 390,000 being made casualties.
