[edit] Information

Kampf um Norwegen – Feldzug 1940 is a 1940 Nazi propaganda film directed by Martin Rikli and Dr. Werner Buhre under orders of the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht. The documentary film follows the Invasion of Denmark and Norway in the spring of 1940. Germany's surprise invasion of Denmark and Norway in April 1940 witnessed heavy fighting on land and at sea, and the first confrontation of the war against Anglo-French forces. Berlin's 1940 cinematic record of the campaign incorporated footage shot by German combat correspondents, animated maps, and scenes from captured Allied newsreels to present a dramatic, comprehensive chronology of the fighting. The German army's rapid seizure of Copenhagen and Oslo, and the infantry's advance across mountainous terrain defended by Norwegian ski troops, define the struggles for Denmark and central Norway. The film's editors blended Allied documentation of naval engagements off Norway's coast with German footage, offering a riveting account of the battles as seen by the men of both navies. The Germans' tenacious defense of Narvik against elite French troops highlights the full-length feature. Enhanced by an original music score, here is a graphic portrayal of one of Hitler's earliest blitzkriegs. The film was shown only internally for the three branches of the German armed forces, although it was a feature film designed for the general audience. It was shelved for unknown reasons, perhaps only because the topic was no longer top priority. Believed lost, a brilliant print surfaced in auction 2005 , and was at once preserved by the Norsk Filminstitutt and the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv. Produced by the Oberkommando Wehrmacht (OKW) and Die Universum Film AG (UFA) --- Introduction by historian Guri Hjeltnes joined to main feature; Pt.2 are bonus UFA Ton-Woche newsreels from 1940 ---
