Notes
Content: Picture caption: "In Norwegen haben die deutschen Sturzkampfflieger eine entscheidende Rolle gespielt. Sie brachen wiederholt den sinnlosen Widerstand. Die Bevölkerung aber hatte längst erkannt, daß die deutschen Soldaten nette Kerle sind. Sonst würden ja die norwegischen Schimädels nicht so interessiert Zuschauer bei der Luftwaffe sein."
