On this day in 1940, the despicable Nazi horde commenced its invasion of Norway and Denmark. This invasion was deemed necessary by the German High Command for several reasons, including securing ore shipments for the Reich, limiting Allied naval operations in the Baltic, and increasing German military presence in the North Sea. Most of all, though, the Germans invaded Norway and Denmark because that’s the kind of shit the Nazis were notorious for doing. Even if there had been no strategic reason for it you can bet the Germans would have gone ahead and invaded anyway.
