Published for the first time in English, this is a German account of the German invasionof Norway in the spring of 1940. It focuses on the efforts of Group “1” led by Eduard Dietl. This group of gebirgstruppen was landed at Narvik in early April by tendestroyers. These ships were then all sunk by the Allies. Dietl’s troops wereoutnumbered by Allied troops but his defense utilized ammunition, food and sailorsfrom the sunken ships and his men retook Narvik once the Allies abandoned theirefforts to push the Germans out of Norway.

"...the real value of the book is the window it offers into the perspectives of the German participants and the nature of the “near run thing” that characterised their assault on Narvik. I would recommend it."

The Northern Mariner/Le marin du nord (Vol. 33, Nos 3 and 4).
