This roughly 150 paged photobook about Finland is somewhat multi-personalitied: This is a 1946 reprint of a 1943 book of the same name, put out in Finland with both Finnish and German photo captions (like this book) at a time when the military alliance between the two countries was at its height. Unlike the original 1943 book, the "military" section of this book, with photos of Finnish soldiers in action and at rest, have been removed, doubtless so as not to offend their neighbor to the south/southeast. Yet, there is a section in the book about the war damage in Karelia and the lost section of Viipuri (Vyborg) -- see photos below -- and a map in the rear of the book, which has the pre-1945 borders!
HARDCOVERED BOOK HAS MINOR COVER AND PAGE DAMAGE IN A FEW PLACES.
