Finland's War Of Choice: The Troubled German-Finnish Coalition in World War II

Finland's War Of Choice: The Troubled German-Finnish Coalition in World War II - Henrik O. Lunde This review is of the audio book.

The portions relating the actual combat operations are mostly a litany of unit designations, commander names and repetitive locations. very little or no insight into tactics, motivations, or strategic events. The small portion that deals with Finland's political options and strategic approach to being squeezed between two totalitarian regimes and picking from just a few suboptimal choices is interesting, but brief.

And the audio book narrator consistently mispronounces "Murmansk" as "Murmanks" at least 200 times throughout the book, which is unbelievably annoying.
