History Of Finland In Pictures


Who said that serious Nazis didn’t appreciate goofing around? In this photo, Generaloberst Eduard Dietl, commanding 20th Mountain Army, gestures mockingly as Norway Reichskommissar Terboven purports to hit him with a toy sledgehammer and as SS Standartenfeurhrer Carlo Otte, on the right, gets ready to strike the general as well with a mock fist. Photo shot in Ivalo, Finland, July 1942.
