The British fiasco in Norway, 1940

Battle ships outside Narvik
John Kiszely discusses the British campaign in Norway, which took place early on in the Second World War.

Drawing on his own experiences at all levels in the military, John Kiszely will assess the British campaign in Norway and its context and evolution. 

He will examine the strategic failures and intelligence blunders, the nature of German air superiority, the troops’ performance and the serious errors of judgement by those responsible for the higher direction of the Second World War. 

The result helps us to understand not only the outcome of the Norwegian campaign but also why more recent military campaigns have found success so elusive.
