We had originally thought that the Soviet forces would be easily dealt with like we did a century prior in the first Winter War. We were wrong. The Reds came in with an army we've never seen, technology only Americans could have, and troops sizes rivaled only by China. It was mesmerizing and we knew it was all over just by looking at their arrival.

The Nordic Campaign, also known as the Second Winter War, was a military campaign instigated by the Soviet Union during the European Wars in an attempt to reduce German influence in Scandinavia. The goal was for the downfall of the Pro-German fascist government of Findland and the isntiliation of a Pro-Soviet puppet government instead to reduce German and fascist influence and presence in Northern and Eastern Europe and preserve Soviet territories in the east.

Finland was quick to arm itself after the Soviet intervention in Poland and the withdraw and defeat of Hungarian and German forces from the country following their defeat at the Siege of Warsaw. Finland originally thought that they could easily defeat the Soviets like they did during the First Winter War, but the opposite had happened as the technologically advanced and superior Red Army overran Finnish positions and were better equipped and armed than their counterparts from a hundred years prior leading to another Soviet victory in the war.

BackgroundEdit

Following the outbreak of the European Wars in the spring of 2060, the Soviet Union was quick yo declare neutrality along with the United States following the outbreak of the war and collapse of the European Commonwealth in the summer of that same year. The Soviet Union did not get involved in the war, but they did build up their military and had soldiers stationed on the European-Soviet border in Eastern Europe for defensive purposes fearing a possible invasion from German-led fascist troops. The fears originated from the Hungarian invasion of Romania and eventually, the joint Hungarian-German invasion of Poland and the Siege of Warsaw. During the siege, Polish General Andrsej Bukowski bravely defended the capital city of Warsaw from the invading German Hungarian forces and eventually pressured the USSR to send in troops and they poured into Poland soon afterwards and by the end of 2061, Poland was liberated. The Soviets refused to stop there and began invading other occupied states such as Czechoslovakia and even invaded Hungary as well which ended the Romanian campaign, but only because the Soviet invasion of the Hungarian homeland forced troops there to withdraw. Throughout the war, Soviet officials were aware of the presence of Finland and how they had allied themselves with Germany and had troops stationed on their border with the Russian mainland. In an attempt to crush fascism and deter Germany, the USSR decided to invade Finland and liberate Scandinavia as a whole.

HistoryEdit

Soviet InvasionEdit

On November 18th, 2065, the Soviet Army was deployed and began pouring in across the border with Finland. Finnish troops had attempted to intercept and push back the Soviets, but to no avail and the Soviet troops continued their advancements. The usage of advanced technology and overwhelming numbers by the Soviets overran the Finnish troops forcing Germany to send in soldiers of their own to delay the Soviet advancements. To avoid a war, the German troops were disgused as volunteers instead and even had civilians forced into the army as well to conceal German involvement in Findland from the Soviet Union.
