In the early morning of April 9th, 1940, the Danish army is alerted. The Germans have crossed the border; Denmark is at war against Europe's strongest army. In Southern Jutland Danish bicycle- and motorcycle companies are ordered out, to against all odds, hold back the forces until the Danish reinforcements can be mobilized.

Atmospheric - April 9th review by JM

Spoiler Alert
19/05/2020

Imagine you are in a country with an aggressive, expansionist southern neighbour. There are rumours of troop movements towards your border.

The border post reports that the border has been breached, then falls silent. So you grab your old rifle and mount your bicycle to repel the invasion. That's the basis of this true story, well told.
