The book is dedicated to the participation of selected fighter aircraft in one of the important chapters of the Second World War, the so-called Winter War. It raged between Finland and Stalin's Soviet Union from November 30, 1939 to March 13, 1940. During its 105-day duration, there were numerous dogfights that are sometimes interpreted as a match between the Finnish David and the Soviet Goliath. In the publication, the attentive reader will get to know the four types from the armament range of the Finnish Air Force that arrived in the country during the conflict as part of foreign deliveries: the Brewster Model 239, the Fiat G.50, the Hawker Hurricane and the Gloster Gauntlet. And they will also learn about the fates of Finnish and foreign pilots who sat in their cabins. This is a fascinating chapter of aviation history, in which the fates of fighters under the extreme conditions of war with a much larger enemy are intertwined on one level, and on the next level, various technical solutions, design plans and military concepts that saw the light of day during the turbulent 30s are confronted. years of the last century.
