1940: Norway surrenders to German forces two months after first being invaded on April 8, 1940. By holding out that long, Norway became the country to withstand the German invasion for the longest period of time at the onset of World War II. Hitler garrisoned Norway with about 300,000 troops for the rest of the war.
