Backagain,
Agreed. Finland was caught between a rock and a hard place and did what they could to survive. Which involved some serious ass-kicking.

Draculya,

Unlikely. The last confirmed hold-out was nearly 40 years ago. Anyone still there would be 85+.

By the way, some people might wonder at my saying "Obviously, the Allies couldn`t aid Poland". Why didn`t France just invade Germany across its western border and take the pressure off Poland?
Hmm, let me get back to you on that.

Not quite. After the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, some people in both France and the UK relished the thought of a fight against both lots of bad guys. They declared war on the Soviet Union as well as Germany, and as they obviously couldn`t intervene to aid Poland, they were going to send an expeditionary force to aid Gallant Little Finland. This required the consent of both Norway and Sweden to 100,000 foreign troops travelling across their (neutral) countries, and negotiations were still going on when peace broke out in March 1940. Poor little Finland was screwed about by all parties, I agree, but you could mention that they did have a go at the Germans at the end of the war.

@Andrew155 Because Finland was separate and got the pootiest deal of many countries. Russia invades Finland, Finland asks Allies for help. Allies say eh no we want Russia on our side thanks. So Finland goes to Germany and says "hey you`re killing Russians, we`re better at it but need supplies give us them and we`ll kill many Russians" Germans go ok. The Finnish people were not under German control they didn`t expel and massacre populations. They were just desperate and fighting for their land. But what ended up happening is Russia destroyed their country, they had to pay them for the pleasure as reparations give up land and rebuild.

There are probably still pockets in the Asian jungles that never got the message to surrender. Occasionally, Filipino villagers find crazy Japanese soldiers.

I don`t get why Finland is shown separately. I mean, I know the exact justification they would, but I would respond that they`re just ashamed of Finland`s association with Germany. You may as well make Romania and Bulgaria separate, otherwise.
