Finland’s Search for Security Through Defence, 1944–89

Macmillan Academic and Professional Ltd 1991

This book discusses how Finland sought security through defence from 1944 to 1989, explaining how it dealt with the Soviet military threat while pursuing a policy of reconciliation with this former enemy. Although the traditional view of the Soviet Union as the most likely enemy persisted amongst some in the military establishment, Finland adopted a policy of neutrality, convincing the West as well as the Soviet Union that it would not tolerate anyone using its territory or air space for military purposes.
