Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Während die demokratische Presse tagelang sich in wüsten Lügen über eine riesige Seeschlacht, deutsche Verluste, englische Landungen ufw. erging, übernahmen die Vorpostenboote der deutschen Kriegsmarine die Sicherung aller wichtigen Häfen und Schiffahrtsstraßen, während die Luftwaffe Englands Angrisse zu Wasser und zur Luft abschlug."
Content: British ships had laid mines off the coast of neutral Norway to disrupt Germany's supply of iron ore, produced in Sweden and shipped through ports in northern Norway. To the Germans, the Norwegians either allowed the mining or were too weak to stop it, and Hitler claimed that Norway had to be occupied to stop an impending Allied invasion of the country.
