Finland did lose 10% of its territory and 20% of its industry according to Wikipedia, but given Stalin's paranoia, why was it not occupied by Soviet troops?

    You are confusing the two wars (ww2 and the winter war). – Moishe Kohan Aug 1 '17 at 20:03

    @DenisdeBernardy: You meant the Continuation War, and the Moscow Amistice. Same thing, really -- Finland simply wasn't defeated wholesale. – DevSolar Aug 1 '17 at 20:08
  • Moishe Cohen & Denis de Bernardy, I wasn't confusing the wars. DevSolar, thanks for the comment / links; I hadn't heard the term "continuation war" before. Denis de Bernardy... just... jeez. – Amorphous Blob Aug 2 '17 at 18:25
