The Warrior deals with the 1940-45 period. After struggling to find his feet as the crown prince, Olav finds a role at last. The second volume in the great story of Olav V offers an intimate portrait of the crown prince at war, and the vital contribution he made to Norway’s wartime history. During these years, Olav will have a chance to put himself to the test and make himself useful in totally new ways. Without an understanding of the war and his role in it, it is impossible to grasp King Olav V of Norway – who he was and who he became.
The tale of the wartime years of the Norwegian crown prince’s family takes in everyday life, military and political work, love, loss, illness and shopping, and even a touch of humour.
