I was recently talking to a friend (who is proud of his Finnish heritage) about the folly of fighting the Russians in winter. He said “We did it, and we won.” I checked the facts on this, and sure enough, the Russians had maybe 4-5 times the casualties as the Finns. Finland however gave up some land with high economic value and had to pay Russia for reparations. Who really won, if anyone? Sometimes the cost of winning doesn’t actually look much like a win at all. So which battles will you win today?
