FinnWars is about Finland fighting against The Soviet Union in WWII. The USSR insisted having land areas from Finland to secure Leningrad’s safety in 1939. Finland didn’t agree on these demands and a war begun. The first war between these two happened in 1939-40. The war raged 105 days during wintertime. Finland succeeded in maintaining its independency though losing some areas. The war was named the Winter War.

In the summer 1941 Germany attacked The Soviet Union and asked some assistance from Finland. Finland and Germany were brothers-in-arms though not exactly allies. Germany gained access through Finland with this agreement and Finland had material and military support from Germany. For example Panzerschrecks, Panzerfausts and StugIIIs. Germany was eager to accomplish operation Barbarossa and the Finns wanted areas back that were lost to the Soviet Union in the Winter War. Hitler insisted loyalty from Finland so that it wouldn’t sign a separate peace treaty without Germany’s approval. Finland’s President Ryti gave Hitler his word about Finland not signing peace treaties with USSR when he is President. Ryti resigned in 1944 and Mannerheim took his place. Ryti’s promises didn’t have anything to do with Mannerheim and so a peace agreement was signed in 1944.

The USSR insisted Finland driving all Germans out of Finland after the peace agreement. Since the Germans didn’t leave fast enough, Finland had to force them out with armed force. The battles took place mostly in Lapland and so the war between Finland and Germany was called Lapland War. In 1945 Lapland War was fought and Finland was finally free from wars. Independence was kept though suffering some area losses.
In a nutshell: Finnwars is Winter War + Continuation War + Lapland war

There is a solution against the gamespy shutdown. You can play all the mods online and the server will be back.
You need at first the basic game BF 1942 –> 1.61 Patch (only if you have the release 2002 edition) –> Online Patch 161b (Anthology) –> Origin Players: or for CD Players or for Origin Players: (thats for find back the server in your Gamespy Browser, fix your widescreen, and give compatibility to Win 7/8 Users) –> go in the bf1942 folder and overwrite the old bf1942.exe with the new one –> right click on the Desktop BF 1942.exe –> Properties –> compatibility –> set start as Win 1998 (v) and as Admin (v) –> click ok thats it you are back again online!

I really wish that someone will make some kind of mod with a focus on what happened in 1918. The Finnish bourgeoisie, the north of Finland, and all kinds of united allies fighting against the unions, and the revolutionaries, that were mostly based in the south.

The young Soviet state didn't do so much, troops were moved from Finland, as they exploited the makhnovist anarchists in Ukraine when fighting against the white army. These revolutionaries were at the same time killed of by the Soviet.

There were still a ruling class in the Soviet. Leaders of the whites that fought against Soviet sometimes even became a part of it after the they had lost.

Greetings from Finland! Thank you for making such a good mod. And that comment before this is mine too. Its a wartime proverb and it says in english: Puncture with a knife the asia's abscess,Ruskies wont stink long in Finland!! (Yelling) and another one what shouted when attacked like russians shouted URAA!! is: Hakkaa päälle pohjan poika! in english: Beat them(i mean attack them,wack them,get on them,beat them up but in didin't find a right word to that =() boys of the North!! And because of that shout our soldiers were known as Hakkapeliitta when we serwed in Army of Kindom of Sweden at 1450-> - 17??. That name Meaned an Great warrior and meaned fear to our enemies.We were the best and the toughest soldiers at northern europe back then =D. Hakkapeliitat were like Green Barrets or spetznatz or navy seals but why the Hell im posting this crap here? Argh! Everyone is going to think that "STOP POSTING **** THAT NO-ONE IS CARED ABOUT!!" Right? **** me and my stupid crap about my stupid County!
