Inside Fortress Norway: Bjorn West – Norwegian Guerrilla Base, 1944-1945, by Thomas Nielsen

Manhattan, Ks.: Sunflower University Press, 2000. Pp. x, 310. Illus., maps, append., biblio., index. $24.95 . ISBN:0-89745-245-3.

The story of the Norwegian resistance during the final months of World War II, told by a veteran of who had some interesting experience. Although the work is a memoir, there is a great deal about organization and operations beyond what Nielsen personally experienced. Since accounts of the Norwegian resistance are rare in English, Nielsen’s memoir is an important work for anyone interested in the anti-Nazi underground movements.
