      Disadvantages of a Scandinavian Campaign

      A. A long fight over mountains. Think Italy with lower temperatures.

      B. Capturing Oslo is not like capturing the Ruhr, or even Paris. Its still a side show.

        Regarding Oslo, did the Germans build anything there? was it's infrastructure any good for building trucks, motors etc? What about shipyards?

        I know they did some mining, & made explosives out of fish oil & took 10.000 horses off to east front from Norway, but again, what about vehicle, or heavy equipment construction?
