Baltic states honour WWII veterans - of the SS

Of all the countries involved in the Second World War, little mention is given to Latvia and Estonia. In 1939, they were invaded and occupied for two years, not by Hitler - but by Stalin's Red Army. With no chance of fighting back by themselves, many soldiers in the Baltic states were forced to join forces with the Germans, leaving a question mark hanging over where their loyalties really lay. Even today, veterans are forced to defend their actions from over 70 years ago.
