Swedish corvette hunting suspected Russian submarine outside Stockholm

The Swedes haven’t been to war in two centuries, true, but they’ve still got a strong military tradition.

The Norwegians put up a very good fight against the Germans in 1940, but there was only one way that could go.

The Danes went toe-to-toe with Prussia more than once in the 19th century. They haven’t had to do much since, even the German invasion in WW2 was peaceful.

The Finns beat the Soviet Union in the first round, lost in the second, and then chased the Germans out. That’s not bad going for a country that hasn’t been independent a full century yet.

The reason none of them has done much since is because they haven’t been invaded lately; all four made serious preparations for a Soviet invasion, despite two of them being officialy neutral and one even being partly equipped with Soviet equipment. The Nordic countries don’t have the same tradition of interfering in other people’s business that France, the UK and the USA have, and a distinct lack of other people wanting to interfere in their business for most of the last 25 years.
