Kampf um Norwegen

I came across this in my 40’s movies marathon: Kampf um Norwegen, a lost Nazi documentary of the invasion of Norway that was rediscovered in 2005. The video above is full-length, but without subtitles.

Whenever I watch movies I have a finger on the screenshot-button, (improvised with a wireless gamepad), looking for interesting shots. Sometimes I end up with hundreds. Here are some stills from Kampf um Norwegen.
