Horses at War V: Soldiers crossing ice cold Simo-river at northern Finland during the Lapland War, 06.10.1944. Retrieving Germans destroyed over 750 bridges like they had planned before at Operation Birke. Finnish forces couldn't use artillery or tanks and that slowed their proceeding(which was ok for the Finns until Soviet Union / Allied Control Commission forced real attack). sa-kuva.fi

Finnish army was underequipped for war; horses, cars, motorcycles, etc were borrowed from civilians for the sake of Fatherland. Touching picture.

Take a look at this account; colourized WW2 pictures about Finns. @jhlcolorizing

Horses at War I. Horses were very important for the Finnish Army during WW2. Every branch of service needed horses. There wasn't motorized vehicles available for tough Finnish terrains at that time. But horses were too slow for roads and one heavy cannon needed 8 pulling horses. Finnhorse was tough and they were treated very well. Army had almost 80000 horses in use during the Winter War and some 7000 were lost. In the picture there is dugout for the horses. It was warm and made for five horses(coldest temperature -42 Celsius at Kollaa-river ). 01.04.1940. sa-kuva.fi

Yep, they build saunas behind battlefields, as a Finn I say that it must have been heaven after living weeks at dugouts with shitty conditions!

"Hey World, don't let your light go out, even though evererything has to darken at times, our next second will be invaluable. Hey World we've been travelling but falling for so long time, one will leave flying, one decaying, but in front of us, there's known Unknown".
