I just completed a movie, Unknown Soldier about the Finnish Army fighting the Soviets after the Winter War. Gosh, what a great movie, has subtitles, but still a great emotional movie. Not very often do I see war movies that are this moving. The Finns fighting that great colossus, the Soviet Union, with hand me down equipment and doing as well as they did. Really recommend it.

Two words: Simo Häyhä .... the name of the baddest sniper who ever lived. He killed over 500 soviet soldiers in 100 days, during the Winter War—a little over half with a Sako M28-30 (basically a Mosin Nagant 91/30) with iron sights, and a little less than half with a submachine gun. He was a true tough guy. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simo_Häyhä

No, I rented it on Amazon Prime. But, it was one of those that was well worth the rental. It, might be also on, YouTube as a rental. I haven't checked there though.
