Picture of the day
Warriors of Lapland.jpg
78 years ago on this day, the Continuation War by co-belligerents Finland and Germany against the Soviet Union began in coordination with Operation Barbarossa. The photograph depicts a Finnish soldier enjoying the spring sun with a reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) at an armoury in Finnish Lapland during the last year of the war on 4 May 1944. Reindeer were used by the Finnish Army to, for example, pull supply sleighs in snow conditions. The photographer's original Finnish caption is translated as 'Warriors of Lapland.'
