Example text

The Soviet desire for a joint ‘anti-aggression’ declaration (aimed against Germany) could be used to dissuade them from the pursuit of actions which would drive the Finns into the German camp. If Moscow then asked for guarantees of Finnish neutrality, he argued that ‘we would be in a strong position for pressing the Finnish Government to take measures which would make it impossible for their neutrality to be compromised by the pro-German elements in the Finnish General Staff’. 26 Munich had seen to that and the names of Chamberlain and Halifax carried far more weight than that of Collier in the Kremlin.

Unlike Memel or Danzig, Finland was not the source of German irredentist claims, although the absence of 1939: The problems of rearmament 41 historical German interests had not saved the rump state of Czecho-Slovakia. Finland and Germany had traditionally shared good relations and trade between the two states was healthy, although Germany lagged behind Britain in this respect. The Finns were not facing the future with great confidence, however. While it was believed in Helsinki that no aggressive ultimatums were likely to come from Germany, the same optimistic disposition was not held towards their giant eastern neighbour, the USSR.

Even when the matter reached the League of Nations Council, a decision was not reached, although hope still existed that a compromise between Helsinki and Moscow could be negotiated. During this time, Northern Department officials in general, and Laurence Collier in particular, were clear in their desire to see the Soviet Union included in negotiations. This was not the state of affairs in Munich on 29 September. The Northern Department’s willingness to address the question of Soviet anxieties in the Baltic, with a view to isolating Germany in that region, have largely been ignored in accounts of the last few months of peace in Europe.
