Críticas:

This is certainly one for the military and political historian and a serious work of scholarship. * Military Modelcraft International * "This is a fascinating look at an important but little known area of fighting during the Second World War. Lunde has produced an excellent history of the crucial fighting in the north, the often confused political and diplomatic background and the troubled relationship between the Finns and their German allies." * Historyofwar.org * An under-examined corner of the Eastern Front: united only by their shared Soviet enemy, this coalition's lack of planning and ill-defined objectives meant the Germans stranded an army and the Finns sued for a separate peace. * World War II Magazine * Filling a gap in our understanding of World War II sums it up neatly for me. I'd always thought that Finland, like Switzerland, remained neutral during the conflict, and this present volume therefore comes as something of an eye-opener for me. Lunde's research into the politics and negotiations is second to none, and the result is a very readable account of one of the more surprising coalitions, albeit one that didn't survive, of the war. Fascinating. * www.booksmonthly.co.uk * A detailed description of the odd coalition between Germany and Finland during WWII, and their joint military operations from 1941-1945 * Military Times * This book explores the unlikely coalition between Germany and Finland in the Second World War... * Britain at War * Overall a very interesting book, which cleanly knits together the different parts of the jigsaw, both military and political, and the different outlooks on the area from Finland, Russia and Germany. * www.militarymodelling.com * This book rises above just being a basic history of what was in reality a strategic backwater.... * World War II Re-enactors Magazine * Like the author's previous work on the Norwegian campaign, this is likely to be the definitive book on the subject for some time to come. * Miniature Wargames *
