German Soldiers March to Lillehammer

German Soldiers March to Lillehammer World War II World History

As Hitler's forces invade Norway, they make their way (among other places) to Lillehammer.

In the top image, we see that German troops are only 50 kilometers from Lillehammer.

Both pictures are from Pictorial History of the Second World War, A PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD OF ALL THEATERS OF ACTION CHRONOLOGICALLY ARRANGED, Volume I, where they appear at page 79 (with this description):

The German advance continues
April 22-26, 1940

GERMANS PUSH ALLIES OUT OF LILLEHAMMER AND STEINKJER

British troops which had landed south of Trondheim joined up with the Norwegians fighting north of Oslo. Near Lillehammer they met powerful Nazi columns and, after fierce fighting, were forced to retire on April 25.

Farther north, British troops pushing south from Namsos occupied Steinkjer, but had to retire on April 24 owing to enemy bombing.

Pictures show German troops advancing towards Lillehammer (top) and (below) Steinkjer.
