Finnish light cav. The name comes from their battle cry, which roughly translates as 'Cut them down!'
Sounds pretty bad-ass to me!
The actual battle cry is "Hakkaa päälle!" The word hakata means to beat or to hit something repeatedly nd the word päälle means on top or onto.
So it roughly translates to "Beat on them" or just "Hit them." Nothing as sophisticated as "Cut them down!" ;P
And left our code of law behind even after we had gone so you guys didn't have to suffer the full weight of the tyranny of the Tsar!
*laughs knowingly and wags her finger at the brother nation*
(Finland formed part of Sweden from the middle ages up to 1809 when it was lost to Russia)
Well, you left your codes of law because the kind Tsar of Russia and Grand Prince of Finland Alexander the first let us keep them.
Anyway, wether being part of Sweden was a good or bad thing to Finland? Both most likely, it did sort of join us into Europe, but Finns were occasionally taxed more heavily than the Swedish and the ruling caste and goverment officials speaking different language did occasionally cause problem.
Also, one of the reason the great Famine of Finland in 1695-1697 killed so many people (1/3rd of all the people in Finland died. The Great Famine of Ireland killed 1/8th. The Famine is known in Finnish as Suuret Kuolonvuodet, the years of great death) was because the Swedish goverment was rather slow in coming to aid.
Funnily enough, if Stalin hadn't said no, Finland and Sweden would have been united again 1940.
