not be fortified. The issue was important not only for Sweden but also for the United Kingdom, which was concerned that a military presence on the islands could threaten Britain's military and commercial interests. In 1832, Russia started to fortify the islands with the great fortress of Bomarsund (Bomarsund, Åland). A combined British and French force of warships and marines captured and destroyed the fortress in 1854 as part of the campaign in the Baltic (Baltic theatre of the Crimean War) during the Crimean War. The 1856 Treaty of Paris (Treaty of Paris (1856)) demilitarized the entire Åland Islands archipelago. During the Finnish Civil War, in 1918, Swedish troops intervened as a peacekeeping force between the Russian troops stationed on the islands and "White" (Whites (Finland)) and "Red" (Finnish Socialist Workers' Republic) Finnish troops who came from Finland over the frozen sea. (Historians point out that Sweden may have in reality planned to occupy the islands.) Within weeks, the Swedish troops gave way to German troops (Baltic Sea Division) who occupied Åland by request of the "White" (conservative) Senate of Finland. left 150px thumb Åland (blue) with historical and modern provinces of Finland (yellow) juxtaposed. (File:Historical province of Åland in Finland.png) After 1917 the residents of the islands worked towards having them ceded to Sweden.
