Here is what she lost in the war settjoments: Finland 133,000 square miles Estonia 16,955 square miles Latvia 24,400 square miles Lithuania 36,500 square miles Poland 49,150 square miles Bessarabia (to Roumania .... 17.M3 square miles Before the Finnish invasion, here is what she regained in the brief span of 90 days: From Poland, western Ukraine and White Russia, a total of 71,756 square miles; her acquisition of 22,606 square miles more than she lost is explained by the fact that some of the territory formerly belonged to Austria-Hungary. Germany got a strip of once- Russian territory in central Poland including Warsaw. Mutual assistance pacts with Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, along with military and naval bases, making the three Baltic states her vitual protectorates.
