Description

Finnish Expansion. The Finnish Expansion completes the entire Eastern Front experience by adding a map that covers Finland from Helsinki, Leningrad, Archangel, Petsamo and Murmansk. The expansion includes the units required to complete the Order of Battle and a 48 page Rules Book/Historical Study to cover fighting in the rugged Arctic terrain. The Finnish Expansion adds a new dimension to Russia Besieged Deluxe Edition in that players can experience the difficulty encountered by the German Army of Norway and the rugged Finnish forces in dealing with punishing terrain, extreme weather and a relentless Russian enemy whose resources never seem to be tapped.

The Rules Book includes a 16 page Historical Study that delves into the history of aggression against Finland by the Soviet Union leading up to the Winter War and eventually, Finland’s entry as an Ally of Germany in what was called the Continuation War. Finland’s only interest in joining Germany was to regain the territory taken from them by the Soviet Union including land and bases in Karelia and mines in the northern region near the Barents Sea. A gallery of photographs is also included, used with permission from the Finnish Military Photography Archives, providing a unique perspective on the combatants, terrain and fighting conditions in the region..
