On April 9th 1940, German troops invaded Norway and Denmark. Both Scandinavian nations had sought to avoid becoming involved in the war in Europe - but they were too strategically important ever to be allowed to stay neutral. They would remain under the Jackboot until war's end. "Battlefield: Norway and Denmark" tells the story of the war in Scandinavia from invasion through resistance to liberation, using much rare original combat footage. It covers the original doomed British attempts to support Norway, with fierce Naval engagements and the landings at Narvik, and then the establishing of resistance fighters in both nations. Resistance groups would not only carry out daring acts of sabotage but also provide vital information on German troop and naval movements to the Allies. Exclusive interviews with the Director of the Norway Resistance Museum, Arnfinn Moland, and the museum's curator, Ivar Kraglund, provide a fascinating insight into the previously hidden world of the heroes of the Resistance. Also covered are the daring British commando raids on Norwegian targets such as the Lofoten Islands, Bear Island (Bjornoya), Vagso and the Vermork Hydro electric plant where the Nazis were preparing 'Heavy Water' for their atomic bomb project. Norway and Denmark were strategically vital because of their coastal waters, and this title also offers dramatic coverage of the offshore war, with the terrible losses suffered by the Arctic convoys en route to Russia, and the destruction of the mighty German battleship Tirpitz in a Norwegian Fjord.
