4. German Invasion of Denmark

Updated: May 27, 2018


What Happened:

Although Strategically unimportant, Denmark had an airfield at Aalborg that would allow the Luftwaffe to operate over Norway. The Danes trusted a non-aggression pact they had signed with the Germans, and did little to mobilize or prepare defences.


The Germans invaded on April 9, 1940, and overran the entire country in less than 40 hours.
