  Norwegian Campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One of the final acts of the Norwegian authorities before dispersement was the promotion of Otto Ruge to the rank of Major General and appointment to Commander-in-Chief of the Norwegian Army, responsible for overseeing the resistance to the German invasion.
The Norwegian 6th Division was located far to the north, close to the Finnish border and not in contact with any of the German occupied areas.
The failure of the central campaign is considered one of the direct causes of the Norway Debate, which resulted in the resignation of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and the appointment of Winston Churchill to the office.

 Namsos campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When the Germans attacked on the morning of the 21st, the Norwegians were supported by a section of Royal Engineers who happened to be in the area.
The Namsos Campaign was not a success for the Allies, though the troops and naval forces and their commanders acquitted themselves well.
The southern arm of the attack which landed at Åndalsnes, was soon drawn into a fight alongside the Norwegians to block the northward advance of the Germans from Oslo and was no longer available to attack Trondheim.

 "There's help for just about everything" Evaluation of the Petre Campaign (Norwegian Broadcoasting   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
When NRK Petre started planning their new campaign for young people, the Suicide Research and Prevention Unit at the University of Oslo (SSFF) and the project manager for the National Plan for Suicide Prevention were included as important partners throughout the entire planning, implementation and evaluation phases of the campaign.
The campaign's approach was to speak directly to those who are at risk of committing suicide, and also to tell the remainder of the population that suicide is a problem in modern Norwegian society.
The campaign was aired during a two-week period, from 5 to 28 February 1999.

 seaclimate.com - Climate down 1939 – 42 (3)
Although the Norwegian Navy was small, it was able to lay sea mines with their fleet of a dozen mine layers and utilising installed coastal batteries at a number of locations.
Norwegian coastal seawater temperatures have to be seen in the wider perspective of the whole North Sea, including the Skagerrak and Kattegat.
Presumably, without the “Norwegian Campaign” and the occupation of Denmark and Norway, and without ‘intensive’ use of Kattegat, Skagerrak and other coastal waters of Norway, the Oslo region would surely have been spared of having record ‘arctic cold’ conditions in January 1940.

 The Invasion of Norway
At least two (and by some accounts four) of the Norwegian Gladiators were destroyed on the ground by strafing attacks, and repeated passes by the Me-110's forced the crews to abandon the machinegun positions in the open and on the hill.
Norwegian fishing boats rescue more than 100 German soldiers, who when brought in to Kristiansand tell their hosts that they are on their way to save Norway from the Allies.
Many Norwegians, however, in addition to the general indignation at the way their neutrality had been violated and their country invaded, were also incensed at the German willingness to bomb towns that harbored Allied resistance.

Following the capture of Narvik, Allied forces totalling 25,000 men are evacuated in four days from northern Norway, by which time King Haakon VII and his Government are on their way to Britain aboard heavy cruiser “Devonshire”.
During that time, many Norwegians escape to fight with the Allies, resistance movements grow in effectiveness, and large German forces are maintained there at Hitler’s command in case the Allies should invade.

 POLES IN THE NORWEGIAN CAMPAIGN OF 1940 - Part II
On December 8, 1940 Gen. Carl Gustav Fleischer, the Commander of the Norwegian 6 Division, which fought shoulder to shoulder with the Poles in the Northern Norway, visited the "Polish Brigade Narvik" (as the Scots called remnants of the Brigade reorganized into Highland Rifle Battalion) in Tentsmuir, Scotland.
All soldiers of the Brigade were awarded a commemorative lanyard in the Norwegian national colours: red, white and blue, with the Norwegian national emblem - the Golden Lion.
For the Poles living in Poland and abroad, the name of Narvik and the history of the Norwegian Campaign of 1940 has a special place in their hearts.

 NORWAY, Landmine Monitor Report 1999
The Norwegian Campaign to Ban Landmines was the main proponent of a Norwegian ban on APMs and the campaign was active in lobbying various political parties and Parliamentary committees in 1995 to promote the ban issue domestically.
According to the Norwegian interpretation of the Treaty, the American-owned mines on Norwegian soil are defined as outside of Norwegian concern.
The specific amount spent on the destruction is not readily available, both because of the time frame of the total destruction process and because the Ministry of Defense claims that the resources spent on this activity are included in the general figures in the budgets for military personnel and activities and therefore not specifically stated.

The Norwegian Campaign for Third World Debt Cancellation was established in Tromsø and Nøtterø in 1992, and on a national level in 1994, when the campaign was called SLUG (Aksjon Slett U-landsgjelda!).
In 1995 the Norwegian ForUM for Development and Environment, which is constituted by 60 civil society organisations and organised in workings groups on different subjects within the field of third world development and global environmental protection, organised a working group on debt cancellation.
In 1998 SLUG became associated with the international campaign Jubilee 2000, whose object was to have all debts burdening the worlds poorest cancelled by the turn of the millennium.

 HyperWar: The Campaign in Norway [Chapter XV]
But the campaign in the Low Countries and France provided similar arguments on a far larger scale and, with the entry of Italy into the war, German prestige was in any case rapidly approaching its zenith.
The scale of the Norwegian campaign, as compared with the later events of the war, was in any case extremely small.
Conversely, the Norwegian attitude to Britain was one of some reserve founded on the supposition, to which the Altmark incident seemed to them to lend colour, that we had for a long time been manoeuvring them towards participation in the war.

The Norwegian forces with which we were now to co-operate might indeed be expected to be apt for delaying operations, since they knew the country.
As for the Norwegians, their reserve detachments collected at Mosjöen had already been despatched to Mo by sea, but the battalion with which our Independent Companies were cooperating went back overland from Mosjöen to Elsfjord, half-way to Mo, where the road was interrupted by a ferry route terminating at Hemnesberget.
A Norwegian machine-gun company and other very small Norwegian units accompanied the force, which was joined in the course of the first day by a fresh company of the Scots Guards, brought forward by motor transport across the mountain plateau from its position east of Bodö, and next afternoon by the missing company.

 Second World War Books: Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Claasen opens his book by quoting Hitler's boast in 1942 that his successful invasion of Norway in 1940 would prove to be one of the two decisive events in the war, and noting the Fuehrer's harsh words for the failure of Germany's WWI leaders to take such decisive action during the 1914-1918 war.
That the Luftwaffe would have an important role in any Norwegian campaign, however, was recognized early on in the planning process by the less partisan OKW.
The author's recapitulation of the ultimately unsuccessful campaign against the Arctic convoys and the Luftwaffe's inability to patrol and defend Norway's lengthy coastline against Allied bombing raids make it clear that the grand strategic vision for Hitler's northern theater was never realized.

 Norwegian Campaign
The major part of the book, a description of the land battle, is divided into two parts: firstly the conflict between the Germans advancing north from Oslo with the retreating Norwegian Army and their British and French allies of 'Mauriceforce' and 'Sickleforce', and secondly the battle for Narvik and the operations south of Bodo.
As befits an airman, Air Commodore Harvey gives particular emphasis to the implications of the land and sea battles of the contribution of the two air forces involved, the RAF and the Luftwaffe, and three chapters are devoted to this aspect.
The book concludes with an analysis of the lessons to be learned from this disastrous episode in the Allied war effort ad charts briefly the Norwegian's heroic struggle under the Nazi occupying power until relieved in 1945.
