The year is 1939, Finland is dragged into World War 2 starting the 105 days long Winter War. After the war peace terms were harsh. Finland lost 15% of its total territory and Hanko, near Helsinki was rented to the Soviets. In 1941, Operation Barbarossa started. Finnish towns were bombarded by the Soviets and the Finnish "attacking phase" started. By end of the year 1941, all lost territory was reclaimed, in addition Finnish troops took large areas of East Karelia, including the town of Petrozavodsk [Äänislinna]. The war changed to trench warfare in 1941.The Trench warfare ended in June 9, 1944 during a massive Soviet offensive. After days of bombing Finnish lines were broken and the Finnish had to retreat. The Soviet offensive was halted between the villages of Tali & Ihantala during the biggest battle ever in history of Scandinavia.
After the Finnish defensive victory, the government started negotiating peace terms with the Allies. The peace was even harder then the Winter War. One: over 20% of the Finnish territory lost, Porkkala rented to Soviets & Germans had to be driven out. This started The Lapland war, which led to the defeat of the German army and they had to retreat to Norway.
