They allied with the nazi's out of self preservation initially. Finland broke off from Russia during the Russian revolution and declared independence in 1917. When Russia attacked Finland in the early days of WWII, US made weapons America gave to the Russians to fight Germany were used to invade Finland. My mother lived in Viipuri Finland which was taken over by the Russians. Finland lost 1/3 of its land. My mother was on the last train out of Viipuri. She was a young girl then and now in her 80's she still has nightmares about the Russians bombing the city.
