When Stalin decided to mess with the Finns in 1939 he failed to take into consideration one demographic that was accustomed to blood, and that was the seal hunters of Finland:

"The Finns crept to the outskirts of the town and waited for the signal to open fire. The Russians outnumbered them by at least five to one; but that didn't matter. The invaders might have been so many seals. The more a man killed, the better for him... The Reds, who had no idea that Finnish soldiers were anywhere within miles of them, bolted in panic - except, of course, those who fell at the first volley. They ran as fast as their numbed and wearied legs could carry them. After them came the swift Finns. It was bloody work, as bloody as the slaughtering of a herd of seals - and as easily accomplished."
