The King's Choice
Posted on: 10/9/2017 2:40:57 AM
 Looks to be an interesting film.

Haakon’s courage ensured Norway would actively defy the invasion longer than any of Germany’s victims, and would continue to resist with a government in exile. (His brother King Christian X of Denmark quickly surrendered to German invaders.] The film shows Haakon initially befuddled and irritated by his son Crown Prince Olav’s prodding for aggressive leadership. But as the royal family retreats farther north, often under German fire, at one point fleeing the Luftwaffe by running into a snowy forest, the King becomes steely, especially after meeting with a German envoy.

It is a good movie, but for those that want a more detailed account of the fighting in April-June 1940, this is not it. It focuses solely on the first three or four days after the attack, and the role of the King, Crown prince and the government in those days.

It is a good watch though.

Look for the upcoming movie on Narvik 1940 for a more detailed account of the fighting.

I’m not worried about the Third World War. That’s the Third World’s problem.

The German war machine arrives in Oslo in April 1940, leaving Norway's king with a difficult choice that will change his country forever.
