  • THE NORWEGIAN CAMPAIGN - This special issue featuring the campaign in Norway in 1940 shows Jean Paul Pallud at his best. His knack of ferreting out the obscure locations in uncaptioned wartime photographs has been demonstrated in many previous issues, but this time he has excelled himself. Sometimes knee-deep in snowdrifts, he was able to cover all the battle sites spread out over hundreds of miles - from Oslo in the south to Narvik in the far north. He had the pleasure to picture for us (see our cover) the half-submerged wreck of one of the German warships still lying in a fjord, certainly the largest wreck of WWII still lying in situ. The chapters in this special issue cover: Daring preventative plans - Norwegian lack of preparation - Weserübung Nord - Confusion on the Allied side - Landing! - Failure at Oslo - Allied reaction - Operation 'Rupert' - Operation 'Sickle' - Operation 'Maurice' - Narvik, the only Allied success - King Hakon leaves Norway.
