Finland 1942: The Finnish Army uses all available forces on the Eastern Front to stop the overpowering Red Army. Lieutenant Harry Järv commands the reconnaissance and combat squads of the 61th Infantry Regiment. He and his men continue to go behind the front lines to deliberately attack Russian forces.
