About this Item

403pp/illus/maps. definitive account of the German invasion and occupation of Denmark and Norway presents the first realistic appraisal of a hitherto neglected area of World War II history. Few attacks by a great military power on defenceless neighbours provoked more international indignation than did Germany's invasion of Scandinavia. Yet most of the extraordinary stories of the German northern theatre of operations went unreported during the war, buried as they were under Top Secret classifications. Clean.

About this title


The Bitter Years: The Invasion and Occupation of Denmark and Norway, April 1940-May 1945
"This book tells the story of Norway and Denmark during the Second World War. Beginning with the history of the Scandinavian countries traditional neutrality, through their attempt to appease Nazi Germany, the invasion, the occupation and repression, to liberation, and the countries' early post-war years. With the stated objective of clearing up old misconceptions, Professor Petrow examines all that occurred, laying bare all of the travails that Denmark and Norway suffered. Sprinkled throughout the book are a number of wonderful black-and-white photos and maps, which help the reader immensely."Keywords: WORLD HISTORY DENMARK NORWAY INVASION OCCUPATION WAR II TWO
