LOL, not a big deal. I just need to pay attention better. Anyways, if memory serves, the UK and Germany both did a lot of passive assistance to Finland, but Germany's help was a good bit more helpful.

One thing that surprises me about the WW2 neutrals were these two: Spain and Turkey. Both had plenty of reason to join the Axis cause. Turkey and Russia have mutually hated one another for ages. Spain saw a Fascist dictator just having taken over the coutry. The Allies even actively worked agaist Mr. Franky's takeover, yet he did not commit to the Axis side. I think Turkey figured they'd lost too much in WW1 and was unwilling to risk more.

Sweden's response was this "there is no Jewish problem in Sweden". A response that enraged Hitler.
The quote is actually "there is no Jewish problem in Finland " and was by the Finnish Prime Minister, when asked by Hitler what he was going to do with the Jews in Finland

I think Spain going to join Germany. Sweden....well.....I don't know. Swiss going to join Germany because Swiss was encircled by Germans
Turkey is too chicken to fight on German until Feb 45. On that day Germany already got encircled by Britishs, Americans, Frenchs, and Russians.
