The German occupation of Norway lasted five years. It isn’t easy to say why Hitler decided to invade Norway. The invasion was decided upon rapidly, was largely improvised and came close to failing.
In this book, the Germans’ movements in the country are mapped, along with their plans, their stay there, and their strategies for seizing and retaining power in Norway.
Never before has the occupation been reviewed and depicted so exhaustively.
'… a thorough and informative piece of work.'
