Why would the Germans try to kill him? The Finns and the Germans were allies during WW2. Besides which, Hayha was shot in the face toward the end of the Winter War and spent the next few years recovering.
“The military history of Finland during World War II encompasses three major conflicts. The first two of these the defensive Winter War in 19391940, and the Continuation War alongside the Axis Powers in 19411944 were waged against the Soviet Union. The third one, the Lapland War in 19441945, followed the signing of an armistice agreement with the Allied Powers, which stipulated expulsion of German forces from Finnish territory.
By the end of hostilities, Finland managed to defend its independence, but had to cede nearly 10% of its territory, including its second largest city, Viipuri, and pay out a large amount of war reparations to the Soviet Union. As a result of this territorial loss, many Finnish Karelians fled or were evacuated from their homes, relocating to areas that remained within the borders of Finland.”
Not sure my intent was clearly conveyed. But it was clear that both the Russians and Germans respected the resistance of the Finns. Most looked on them as simply crazy. Might be right.
