This is the official Naval Staff history of the Norway campaign, originally published internally in 1951. It covers the period from early April 1940 to the completion of operations in June. The operation involved most of the Royal Navy's ships in the Home theatre at the time.
'The release of the official British history of the Norwegian naval operations of the Second World War provides fascinating reading as a tale of near-misses, bravery and blunders … the book contains a wealth of detail … a fascinating study of the attack on Norway [it] should be read by all interested in this campaign, in the use of sea power for amphibious attacks, and in the employment of joint forces.' - The Northern Mariner
