So why does Tuuri refer to the invading army as "Russians" vs calling them "communists" or "Soviets?"

Pidin kirjasta, toimii loistavana introna kotimaisiin sotakirjoihin. Kirja on sivumääränsä ja suppeutensa vuoksi useimmille helpommin lähestyttävä kuin koko kansakunnan tuntema Tuntematon sotilas.
