The real suprising thing is how on Earth Finland wasn't overrun by Soviets. They did so well in Poland, and later, when they were pushing the Germans back. Agreed, the Soviets were busy with Germans at the time but seriously, it's shocking that Finland managed to do so well without completely being wiped out. Somehow they managed to stay out of the partitioning of Eastern Europe too, I should go and read on that. No one cared about Hungaria or Poland, but Finns managed to get away with their independence, only less than three decades after their independence from Russian Empire.
