Full Description:

This major history documents the German invasion of Norway, focusing on the events at sea. The first operation in which the air force, army, and navy worked closely together, Operation Weserübung included the first dive-bomber attack to sink a major warship and the first carrier task-force operations. Based on primary sources from British, German, and Norwegian archives, this book gives a balanced account of the reasons behind the invasion and showcases an unrivaled collection of photographs. As the definitive study of Germany’s first and last major seaborne invasion, it offers a close look at an important but often neglected aspect of World War II.

Geirr H. Haarr lives in Stavanger, Norway and travels extensively in his capacity as an industrial executive, working in environmental project development. Combining his academic training, research skills and a passion for naval history, he has delved into some of the more exciting aspects of the naval history of WWII in Europe.
