The Baltic nations - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - enjoyed a brief
independence between the World Wars before being annexed by the Soviet Union in
1940. The grim experience of Soviet occupation made it inevitable that after the
German invasion of Russia in 1941 they would fight beside the Wehrmacht as
allies against the Red Army while always hoping for restored independence. That
hope was crushed again in 1944-1945; yet 'Forest Brother' guerrillas continued
to fight against hopeless odds for years after the second Soviet occupation.
This extraordinary story is illustrated here with rare photographs, insignia
charts, tables of units and detailed uniform plates. Contents: The historical
background * The Firest Soviet Occupation * The German
Occupation * Estonia * Latvia * Lithuania * The Second
Soviet Occupation * Colour plates by Darko Pavlovic.
