In the wake of the civil war that followed Finland's independence from Russia in 1917, the new Russo-Finnish border was established across the Karelian Isthmus. An area long fought over by Russia, Finland and Sweden, and only 32km from the military and industrial city of St Petersburg, both sides began an intensive programme of fortification.

When the Winter War broke out in November 1939, Finland's complex and heavily defended Mannerheim Line was fought over fiercely, with the network of fortifications coming under heavy bombardment, air attack and armoured assault. Through an analysis of the background and operational history of the Mannerheim Line, this book attempts to dispel myths and provide an accurate assessment of its great historical importance.
