Finnish Civil War
by Jesse Russell and Ronald Cohn




Overview -
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Finnish Civil War (Finnish: Suomen sis llissota, Kansalaissota; Swedish: Finska inb rdeskriget) was a part of the national, political and social turmoil caused by World War I (1914-1918) in Europe. The Civil War concerned control and leadership of The Grand Duchy of Finland as it achieved independence from Russia after the October Revolution in Petrograd. The war was fought from 27 January to 15 May 1918 between the forces of the Social Democrats led by the People's Deputation of Finland, commonly called the "Reds" (Finnish: punaiset), and the forces of the non-socialist, conservative-led Senate, commonly called the "Whites" (Finnish: valkoiset). The Reds--usually Finnish-speaking workers--were supported by the Russian Soviet Republic; they were based in the industrial cities in the south. The Whites--dominated by farmers and middle- and upper-class Swedish speakers--received military assistance from the German Empire. The Whites won the war, in which about 37,000 people died out of a population of 3 million.
