  1. There was a sinple soldier boy
    who grinned at life in empty joy,
    slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    and whistled early with the lark

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum
    with crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.

    No one spoke of him again.

    You smug faced cowards with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads walk by
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.

    Siegfried Sassoon

  2. One of the classic disasters that result from poor command leadership at sea, on land or in the air. Let!s see…. superior German firepower and maneuverability and their fleet command just assumes the role of a target. The Kriegsmarime was often better than this later in the war. A shameful sacrifice of German sailors and soldiers. As for the Norway…. better to be lucky than good.

  3. I think what Hitler expected was that the Norwegians wouldn’t put up that much of a fight. After all he did view them as fellow Germanic people who spoke a somewhat similar language. Plus Scandinavia as a whole was hitlers wet dream of what he he wanted for Germany.
