Norway came to take up a surprising amount of the British military establishment's attention between 1940 and 1945. Norway's invasion and subsequent occupation forced Britain to reassess its relationship with Norway, a country largely on the periphery of the main theatres of the Second World War. This occurred at all levels of political and military decision making, from the grand strategic concerns of Winston Churchill and the British chiefs of staff to the tactical problems of the airmen in Royal Air Force squadrons and sailors of Destroyers and Motor Torpedo boat flotillas. In this fascinating study, Chris Mann sheds light on the Royal Naval and Combined Operations organisation's extensive operations on and around the Norwegian Coast and their relationship to the Battle of the Atlantic and the Normandy Landings and for the first time, reveals the political, military and intelligence issues surrounding British involvement after the campaign of 1940.
