Dear Listers:

Hi! Were any NKVD troops used in the fighting in the Summa or Lahde areas during February 1940?

All the best,

Depends what you mean by "fighting". There were NKVD platoons attached to every division or corps as well as NKVD regiments in the rear zone.

Dear Art,

Hello! I just saw this post. Thank you. I am interested in learning about the different NKVD units attached to Soviet Rifle Divisions during the Winter War in the Karelian Isthmus. Would you be able to assist me in learning about this?

All the best!
