Soviet Policy towards Scandinavia 1939-1941


Soviet Policy towards Scandinavia 1939-1941

The project focusses on Soviet policy towards Scandinavia during the first two years of the Second World War, especially with regard to the situation in the High North. It will evaluate how the Winter War and the Petsamo question were affected by relations with Germany; and further how the Soviet Northern Fleet reacted to the German invasion of Norway in 1940 and to the subsequent German presence in Northern Norway during the build-up to Operation Barbarossa.
