  The Finnish Winter War 1939-1940
The defensive plan of the Finnish high command was dated in 1934 and it had as its basic premise the idea of stopping an enemy attack on the Karelian Isthmus at a certain point where natural obstacles like the Vuoksi-river would suppress the enemy forces and prevent their operational possibilities.
The other army corp of the Karelian Istmus Army was the III Army Corps (8th and 10th Divisions) commanded by Erik Heinrichs and deployed in the eastern Isthmus along the Vuoksi riverbend.
Finnish troops (Er.P 17 and after 4th of Dec Er.P 25) were unable to delay the attackers and Salla village was burned in the 9th of December.

 Data of the Finnish Army in the Winter War, Part 1
The Finnish field army mobilized 9 divisions in addition to the 3 brigades, which consisted of units of the standing army, and a large number of separate battalions and other smaller units.
The army was divided into three Corps, the II and III Corps in the Isthmus creating the Isthmus Army, and the IV Corps in the Ladoga Karelia, N and NE of Lake Ladoga.
The battalion was in the Finnish Army the most widely used tactical unit, being light enough to maneuver in covered terrain, and strong enough to pack adequate punch.

 Historical Bibliography No.3: Operational Level of War
This operation entails a combined arms army entering battle on the march, a river crossing, and a penetration and envelopment.
The Soviets consider the Battle of Iasi-Kishinev (20-29 August 1944) to be one of the most instructive battles of World War II because of the terrain in which it was fought and because of the strategic, political, and military results that it achieved.
Arguing against the American military mind-set rooted in wars of attrition, the author instead advocates a mastery of the operational level of war as characterized by the relational-maneuver method of operations, a method whose main principles are avoidance, deception, elusiveness, and momentum.
