Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Tiina Kinnunen, Ph.D. (2000) in General History, University of Tampere, Finland, is Adjunct Professor at the University of Eastern Finland. She has published on the history of European feminism and historical writing, and Finnish history culture of World War II. Ville Kivimaki, MA, is a doctoral student of history at the Abo Akademi University in Finland. He is finishing his PhD thesis on the war trauma and psychiatric treatment of the Finnish soldiers in 1941-45."
"Finland in World War II" is not a straightforward narration of the events of the war or rather wars, the Winter War, the Continuation War and the war to drive out the German army of former allies. Instead the book is a collection of twelve articles which are dealing with different aspects of the war and its history. Next to straightforward military history concerned with the events at the front, the home front is also discussed. Other articles deal with the impact of the war on society, for example what role it played the development of social state. Another section discusses the way the war played a role in post-war Finland.
This broad approach will certainly not be everybody's cup of tea, but I found it thoroughly fascinating to learn about all sides of the war, not only about its military side. Though this is a scholarly book (footnotes and all) it is very easy to read and requires prior knowledge of the events of the time. I can recommend it to anybody interested in the subject.
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com (beta)
'Following an introduction by the editors, this volume includes a dozen essays on Finland and the Second World War, during which the tiny republic twice fought the Soviet Union (1939-1940, 1941-1944) and then Germany (1944-1945). While only one essay is devoted to operational matters, others explore the problems of a small country during a superpower conflict, coalition warfare in an unbalanced relationship, and societal mobilization and domestic politics in a democratic nation. Other essays deal with civilians under Soviet occupation, prisoners-of-war, memorialization and the lack of it, and the long term political, diplomatic, cultural, and social impacts of the war. A useful work for those interested in the fate of small nations in great wars, democratic institutions in wartime, or the Eastern Front in World War II.'
