A contrafactual writing of history is needed to avoid mistakes made in the past. Was it possible for Finland to avoid the Winter War with a more realistic diplomacy, will remain a puzzle for sure. Another question is, would it have been possible for Finland to get rid of Germany latest in 1943 or early 1944 and avoid the the strategic offensive of the Red Army in the summer 1944?
