Army of Norway (Wehrmacht)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Army of Norway, also simply Army Norway (German: Armee Norwegen), was a German army operating in the far north of Norway and Finland during World War II. The Army of Norway was under Armeeoberkommando Norwegen (Army High Command Norway), abbreviated AOK Norwegen, which was one of the two army echelon headquarters controlling German troops in the far north.

Armeeoberkommando Norwegen was directly subordinate to OKH, the high command headquarters of the Wehrmacht. It was created from Army Group XXI in December 1940, itself a successor of the XXI Army Corps, and disbanded in December 1944, with its assets taken over by the 20th Mountain Army.


The Army of Norway took part in Operation Barbarossa in 1941. In talks between Finnish and German staffs in Helsinki in June 1941, the Germans were given military responsibility over northern Finland; Army Norway was to take Murmansk and the Murmansk railway. The plan was codenamed Operation Silberfuchs (Silver Fox).

The Army was evacuated from Norway in 1945 as part of the Operation Uberbirkhahn.
