Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Die Westfront war ohne größere Kämpfe während der Entscheidung in Norwegen. Aber auch hier fehlte es nicht an kühnen, erfolgreichen Unternehmungen der deutschen Soldaten. So gelang es zum Beispiel bei einem Vorstoß, einen französischen Güterzug mit mancherlei Material zu erbeuten und auf deutsches Gebiet zu bringen."
