AITTOJOKI, FINLAND 9 December 1939: As Soviet troops pressed into the wilderness area north of Lake Ladoga, the Finns instituted a full-scale scorched earth policy. Even those Russians lucky enough to find Finnish dwellings still intact often met with disaster. With the onset of the severe winter, the Sissi began raids deep behind Red Army lines with standing orders to destroy all shelter. One such raid by the 27th Sissi Company, let by Lieut. Perala, struck several battalion headquarters of the 18th Rifle Division stationed at the village of Aittojoki at dawn.*

AFTERMATH: In the pre-dawn darkness, the Finns had silently enveloped the Russian occupied village, aided by the bitter cold which concerned the Russian sentries more than the possibility of a Finnish attack so far behind the front lines. The surprise was total as the Sissi killed many of the Russians in their beds and fired the wooden structures with "Molotov cocktails". As nearby Russian reinforcements , roused by the sounds of gunfire, hurriedly approached the village, the Sissi faded silently once more into the forest-the wounded loaded upon pulkkas.*
