Notes
Content : Note how the official German captions for the pictures showing the Norway-Denmark campaign use the softer word "occupation", rather than "invasion", to suggest a necessary operation relatively free of violence.

Content : Picture caption: "Die Durchführung dieser Aktion stand bis dahin einzig in der Kriegsgeschichte da. Reibunglos Klappte die Besetzung. Im Morgengrauen des 9. April waren deutsche Truppen in Kopenhagen, wo sie freundlichneugierig von der Bevölkerung empfangen wurden."
