Continuation War Finnish Infantry Minifigure NEW United Bricks
Continuation War Finnish Infantry minifigure - this is a United Bricks designed and printed figure
The Continuation War began 15 months after the end of the Winter War. In June 1941, with the start of the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Finnish Defence Forces launched their offensive following Soviet airstrikes. By September 1941, Finland occupied East Karelia and reversed its post Winter War concessions to the Soviet Union along the Karelian Isthmus and in Ladoga Karelia. The Finnish Army halted its offensive past the old border, around 3032 km (1920 mi) from the centre of Leningrad and participated in besieging the city by cutting its northern supply routes and digging in until 1944. The conflict stabilised with only minor skirmishes until the tide of the war turned against the Germans and the Soviet Union's strategic VyborgPetrozavodsk Offensive in June 1944. The attack drove the Finns from most of the territories they had gained during the war, but the Finnish Army halted the offensive in August 1944.
Hostilities between Finland and the USSR ended with a ceasefire, which was called on 5 September 1944, formalised by the signing of the Moscow Armistice on 19 September 1944. One of the conditions of this agreement was the expulsion, or disarming, of any German troops in Finnish territory, which led to the Lapland War between the former co-belligerents.
