Last weekend was Cold Wars 2018 in Lancaster, PA. Zeb Cook ran at Finland 1939 game using Combat Patrol™: WWII. He was short a couple of players, so I was able to play in this game. I had a terrific time. It was a hard scenario for the Russians. We had to advance across the table.
We (Russians) enjoyed some initial success on my (left) flank. I was advancing toward the frozen river with my squad, and then I ran into a hidden squads of Finns who ambushed me. I passed my morale checks, fired with some of my men, and then charged into hand-to-hand combat. By the end of the game, this Finnish squad was down to two wounded figures who had gotten away and crossed the river at the bridge.
At this point, though I had crossed the stream and occupied the clump of trees, it was clear we were not going to get an intact squad off the far end of the table. It was a very good game, and a tight scenario. The special rules in the free Winter War supplement really added period flavor to the game.
