Latvia was forcibly occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940. Later

captured by the Germans and then recaptured by the Soviets. Whether

because of conviction or just because of where they happened to be

when one or the other occupying force was in power, there were

Latvians fighting in both the armies. If they could have chosen

they probably would have been neutral.
