Age 11

Operation Weserebung was the German attack on Denmark on April 9, 1940, during the Second World War. The invasion's primary purpose was to use Denmark as a staging ground for operations against Norway, and to build an extensive network of radar systems to detect English bombers bound for Germany. The attack was a breach of the non-aggression pact Denmark had signed with Germany less than a year earlier. Denmark's military forces were inferior in numbers and equipment, and after a short battle were forced to surrender. Lasting approximately six hours, the German ground campaign against Denmark was one of the shortest military operations of the Second World War.
