Just click this link to see the films: The Nordic War 1939-45
This is the story of the three wars that Finland fought during the Time of the Second World War. The first was the Russo-Finnish War. The second was the Continuation War. The third was the Lapland War.
I am fascinated by history and strongly believe that Americans focus too much on their own history while ignoring the history of other parts of the world.
(Some documentary videos on You Tube are scratchy and poorly organized. This one is beautiful and clearly narrated.)
