In April 1940, the German forces invaded Norway in an attempt to gain access to its valuable iron ore resources, which were needed for their war effort. However, the Norwegian army and Allied forces put up a fierce resistance, leading to the Battle of Narvik - one of the most significant engagements of the Norwegian campaign. For two months, the Norwegian forces and their allies fought against the overwhelming German forces, ultimately forcing them to retreat and regain control of the city in June 1940.
The Battle of Narvik was an important victory for the Allies as it showed that they could not be intimidated and were capable of successful offensive operations. It also highlighted the bravery and dedication of the Norwegian people in defending their homeland, and demonstrated the significance of the Norwegian campaign in the Second World War.
