Attacker: German
Defender: Norwegian / British


After the initial landings at Oslo, the Germans began to move northward, through the valley of the Gudbrandsdalen, towards Trondheim. The Norwegians and British forces there attempted numerous blocking actions which were largely unsuccessful. One such was made by elements of Group Ruge outside the village of Balberkamp. Knowing they could not halt panzers, the Norwegians fully expected British reinforcements to come to their aid in their desperate stand. Displaying superb tactical insight, the German commander dispatched a lightly armed company in a wide flanking movement to seize the heights behind the enemy position. Luck was with them, and the Germans were able to establish themselves on the hills just prior to the arrival of the British.


Victory Conditions

The German must eliminate Norwegian/British units
