Norway - Hordeland to Aurland

Norway was invaded by Germany in 1940, and Bergen was occupied by the enemy. The Germans started to advance towards Voss and Norwegian forces positioned themselves at strategic positions to halt their advance. One of those battles was fought at the top of Brattefossen chosen because of its view of the road. The battle here was lost but this site remains a symbol of Norwegian wartime spirit of resistance and sacrifice.
