The case of Finland is a highly peculiar one, for they fought actively against the Soviets during the Winter War with some measure of success, then again from '41 to '44 during the Continuation War with less success and more German backing, and then from '44 to '45 engaged in the Lapland War with Germany while scaling down military operations to fulfill the requirements of the Moscow Armistice.
