    The Liberation of Finnmark was a military operation, lasting from 23 October 1944 until 26 April 1945, in which Soviet and Norwegian forces wrested away control of Finnmark, the northernmost county of Norway, from the German Army. It started with a Soviet offensive that liberated Kirkenes in October 1944. The Germans fought in the rest of Norway until they capitulated on 8 May, bringing a definite end to the conflict.
