“The Norwegian Campaign, 1940”

Although in most general histories of the Second world general the Norwegian Campaign of 1940 is dispatched in a few pages or lines — then left to pay attention to the spectacular offensive begun on May 10 on the Western Front That led to the fall of Belgium, Holland and the powerful France, it is no less true that it is one of the most studied campaigns in the schools of staff of the different Western armies, being the German invasion of Norway, which was materializo in the early hours of Tuesday 9 of April, the first combined operation of the history, since it required the coordinated performance of the three branches of the Wehrmacht (the Heer, the Kriegsmarine and the Lüftwaffe) under a joint command. In this way, the simultaneous occupation of the main Norwegian cities would take place in a very risky operation, right in front of the Royal Navy’s Home Fleet.
