  • Operation Weserubung

    Superbly-researched story of the Nazi invasion of Norway in 1940. Written from the Norwegian perspective, well-illustrated.

    Picture: the end of a Kriegsmarine heavy cruiser Blucher, sunk by torpedoes fired from a Norwegian ground-based battery. The Nazi raider attempted to sneak through a fjord but was sunk with great loss of German life. I saw a great diorama of this scene at the Norwegian Armed Forces Museum at the Akershuss fortress, Oslo.
