Military history in Kuhmo

In Kuhmo, the battles of the Winter War lasted throughout the war, and the events were like the entire Winter War in miniature: fierce defensive battles, guerrilla attacks, fierce counterattacks and devastating motto battles. Its own peculiarity was the struggle against the ski troops of the Red Army. In Kuhmo, the Finns struck 54. Mountain division and destroyed Dolin’s Ski Brigade.
