“The wolves will eat well this winter” – Anonymous Finnish officer, during a battle in the area of Suomussalmi

Only a few years have passed since Finland gained its independence in 1917 and the events of the following Civil War have led to a country that is recovering from fresh wounds. But the trials for this young Nation are not ended. The Soviet Union, considering that the Finnish-Russian borders were too close to Leningrad, demanded them to be moved westward and for the dismantling of all the fortifications that the Finnish had built in the Karelian Isthmus.

Following the Finnish rejection of these terms, the Soviets bombed Helsinki and invaded the country with over 400,000 soldiers. The Finnish Army could not possibly match the assaulting forces in terms of manpower and materiel and Finland’s destiny seemed already decided.

On the contrary, this was the beginning of one of the most epic defensive campaigns ever fought. Described by Harold Macmillan as “Thermopylae every day” and fuelled by Finnish Sisu, this was the start of the Winter War!

After Order of battle: US Marines, developers The Artistocrats are coming back with a new DLC, but this time we move to the Far North.

Order of Battle: Winter War is set during the war between Finland and Soviet Union, fought after only three months the Russian invaded Poland in agreement with the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

This new expansion for Order of Battle includes the Winter War (1939-1940), the Continuation War (1941-1944) and the Lapland War (1944-1945). Players take control of the Finnish Army and, according to the shifting tides of war, against troops from Germany or the Soviet Union.

The game has reached the Beta Phase and we invite all the players to join and to help us in giving the final touches!
