  Wikipedia: Norwegian resistance movement
During World War II the Norwegian resistance movement (both civilian resistance and some pockets of military resistance that did not surrender in 1940) remained very active throughout the war.
Norwegian resistance kept many German divisions tied down in occupation duty and Norwegian spotters led to the destruction of numerous German warships.
The Norwegian resistance also smuggled people in and out of Norway during the war and also managed to snatch the world's supply of heavy water and also destroy a heavy water plant, not so much preventing the Germans from developing an atomic bomb as helping the United States to do so themselves.

 How do you say 'globalize resistance' in Urdu? - by Eric Lee [LabourStart]
One sees the slogan 'globalise resistance' more and more these days, and yet the reality is that the labour movement and left continues to use many of the old techniques and technologies which so colosally failed to 'globalize resistance' in the previous century.

The relationship between Quisling and Terboven was tense, although Terboven, presumably seeing an advantage in having a Norwegian in a position of power to reduce resentment in the population, named Quisling to the post of "Minister President" (as opposed to Prime Minister) in 1942, a position the self-appointed "Führer" assumed in 1943, on February 1.
Vidkun Quisling stayed in power until he was arrested May 9 1945 in a mansion on Bygdøy in Oslo which he called Gimle after the place in Norse mythology where the survivors of Ragnarok were to live.
