07 DECEMBER 1939, SUVILAHTI - LOIMOLA RAILROAD, Commander; 36th Regiment's attack on the Suvilahti axis has bogged down. Front line reports indicate that most of our leading forces were repulsed by the presence of enemy armor in this sector. Russian troops are trying to take advantage of this failure. Forward enemy elements; infantry supported by tanks are advancing on both sides of the railroad leading to the key city, Loimola. We cant establish communication with most of our forward elements and cannot be sure about the enemy's location. Your company's task is to follow the railroad and establish contact with the forward elements of the 36th Regiment. You will also intercept any enemy spearhead threatening the Loimola Railroad. Our sector is vital for the rear defense of the 4th Corps. We must stop the Russian advance at all costs. Good Luck.
