stella polaris

Operation Stella Polaris

Operation Stella Polaris was the cover name for activity in which Finnish signals intelligence records, equipment and personnel were transported into Sweden after the ending of the Continuation war in 1944. The threat of Soviet occupation was considered too likely and an operation was formed to support guerrilla warfare in Finland after occupation.

The leader of operation was Lieutenant Colonel Reino Hallamaa.

Most of the records were later destroyed, but some were sold off to Japan, France and USA.
