    And some more info:

    In June 1944 the soviet Karelian "Front" (from Lake Laatokka to the Arctic Sea) had five armies, three of which were facing the Germans - 14th, 19th and 16th - in the North and two the Finns - 32nd and 7th. In addition there was the 7th Air Army.

    The soviet Leningrad "Front" in the Karelian Isthmus had two armies - 21st and 23rd - plus naval infantry units of the Baltic Fleet. In addition there was the 13th Air Army and the Baltic Fleet naval aviation.

    Ah, seems to be a lack of good English books on the Continuation War. Shame I don't speak Finnish.

    I do not support the Nazis or the Fascist movement in any way but It annoys me when everyone focuses on German war crimes and ignores everything bad that the Soviets did.
