Hitler's Nordic Ally?
Finland and the Total War 1939–45
Finland remained free of Nazi rule during the Second World War. Yet its army collaborated with the Germans in fighting the mighty Soviet Union, before turning on its ally in 1944. This serious and in-depth account of Finland’s three conflicts – the Winter War, the Continuation War and, to a lesser extent, the Lapland War – highlights the ambiguities in Finland’s relationship with Nazi Germany and allows the reader a final judgement on the significance of its collusion.
