The UK and France made several proposals to provide aid to Finland during the Winter War. These were thinly veiled attempts by the UK to secure Norwegian ports and Swedish iron ore from falling to Germany and by France to make the war occur somewhere other than France. They were unsuccessful and as they dragged their feet Finland began to doubt the arrival of assistance and commenced peace negotiations. What if the the Western Allies had held to their word and delivered 20,000 men each via Petsamo before the end of February? Is it too little too late to have any effect? More importantly what effect does this have on the larger geopolitical scene?
