Interrogate ZEGH8578
« on: January 12, 2012, 09:21:02 AM »
I could not find an ask away thread for you so I made a new on special because you deserve the best :hyke:

So I read an article on the butter shortage in Norway is this bullshit?  It just seems strange to me but different places do things different so I thought I would go straight to I2's own Norwegian correspondent

Why is it that in WWII, German commerce raiders sunk a very large number of Norwegian cargo ships?? With a few of the German ships, the majority of what they sunk was Norwegian.

WTF???

Why is it that in WWII, German commerce raiders sunk a very large number of Norwegian cargo ships?? With a few of the German ships, the majority of what they sunk was Norwegian.

Norway allready had an impressively large cargo fleet at the time, so it kindov became a default that commercial ships in the Atlantic would be Norwegian.
Since they count as "non-combatants", lost commercial sailors tend to become neglected by history.

Wiki explains "Before the war, Norway's Merchant Navy was the fourth largest in the world and its ships were the most modern. The Germans and the Allies both recognised the great importance of Norway's merchant fleet, and following Germany's invasion of Norway in April 1940, both sides sought control of the ships. Norwegian Nazi puppet leader Vidkun Quisling ordered all Norwegian ships to sail to German, Italian or neutral ports. He was ignored. All Norwegian ships decided to serve at the disposal of the Allies. The vessels of the Norwegian Merchant Navy were placed under the control of the government-run Nortraship, with headquarters in London and New York.

Nortraship's modern ships, especially its tankers, were extremely important to the Allies. Norwegian tankers carried nearly one-third of the oil transported to Britain during the war. Records show that 694 Norwegian ships were sunk during this period, representing 47% of the total fleet. At the end of the war in 1945, the Norwegian merchant fleet was estimated at 1,378 ships. More than 3,700 Norwegian merchant seamen lost their lives."

Interesting. I had no idea the Norwegian fleet was that big back then. I knew they had a very large commercial fleet for their population (because like, fjords or something) but I didn't realize they had the 4th largest commercial fleet in the world.

You're right, these things don't tend to make it into history books. I never learned this in high school and it isn't even mentioned in most WWII documentaries.
WTF???

I heard a piece of trivia the other day.

Norwegians are the largest consumers of Mexican food in Europe.

Do you have any input on this??
