We put three Finland books on this USMBOOKS web page because in a way they are all inter-related to Finland during World War II. Karelien is an outstanding photo documentary of Finland's war effort on their eastern front. The Lappland book is a superbly illustrated view of the conditions German Gebirgsjaeger and Waffen-SS troops faced in winter in Finland. The third book on this web page, Finnland - Nordisches Land is an outstanding document on each of the various provinces of Finland and Finland in general. The book was given by an SS-Oberscharführer to his SS-Hauptscharführer with a very nice dedication on the flyleaf.

The hard cover book Finnland - Nordisches Land is a German language photo book about the culture, history and geography of the Nordic country of Finland where many Waffen-SS and other troops were stationed during World War II. The 70-page, 8-½ x 11-¾ inch hard cover book was printed in Finland for German publishing company Lühe Verlag of Berlin and Leipzig in 1943.

It contains photographs of castles and country estates, historic churches, beautiful forests and the forestry industry, art and architecture, lakes, beautiful women and the industrious Nordic people who inhabit the large Northern European country.

What makes this 1943 Nazi book even more interesting is the 27 April 1944 dedication on the front flyleaf, showing that it was a present by an SS-Oberscharführer to his SS-Hauptscharführer while stationed in the Karelian Forest. We have translated the dedication on the photo directly below.
