In Finland the freedom to roam and related rights are called "jokamiehenoikeus" in Finnish and "allemansrätten" in Swedish, literally translated "every man's rights", similar to other Nordic countries.

Marlene Dietrich, "a German who had renounced her country following the rise of the Nazis and rejected Hitler's request that she return--became an ardent and fearless supporter of the Allied Forces, performing hundreds of times for the troops as near the war zone as she could get." " When asked why she had traveled to war zones to entertain and comfort Allied troops, she famously and simply replied, "aus Anstand." "It was the decent thing to do."" by Ntumba Félicité Basambombo

"The Winter War was a military conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland in 1939–1940. The Soviets possessed more than 3 times as many soldiers as the Finns, 30 times as many aircraft, and a 100 times as many tanks. The war essentially ended in a peace treaty, but the Soviets suffered over 300,000 casualties, and had 5,000 of their 6,000 tanks captured by the Finns. There's also one report of a single Finnish sniper, Simo Häyhä, codenamed the White Death who had over 500 confirmed kills." by sharron
