  I had few thought about your written text in your web page called " How
to Start a War". It's very subjective view on WWII, but that is not why I
am emailing to you now. I'm Finnish and I was disturbed by you notation
that "Russia also invaded Poland and Finland as a joint venture with
Germany."
  Finns remained free over the whole WWII. By Germany's preasure we
attacked the Russia to free our lands invaded in the earlier "Winter War",
an offensive by Russia( Russia had the aim to make us a part of the
Communist Russia.) After we got our lands back we stopped advancing the
Russian territory. We did get some assistance from nazi-Germany to fight
the Russians. At the end of the WWII finns made a peacepack with Russians
and drove the German troops( which had been helping the Finland to
attack Russia) out of the Finnish territory. The peace agreement was hard
and Finland lost much land from it's eastern part. Finland stayed
democratic over the whole Cold War. We had good trade relations between
the Russia so some Western Countries thought we were communists. Nowadays
Finland has gross national product that of an England, Germany and other
wealthy western countries. Finland is not a part of the poor Eastern
Europe,  it's part of the Northern Europe countries like Sweden and
Norway.
  By the way, I stumbled my way to this article by founding The Petrell
Family Newsletter, also located at your web page. I thank you for
maintaining important genelogy imformation lettertables about various
families. I'm also Petrell and I know something about Petrell-family. In
Finland there even exists a written book conserning Petrell-family
history. I know my grandmum has one copy and I've been meaning to contact
her where to buy one myself.
