Battle Of Narvik. German Destroyer "Georg Thiele"


Nazi Germany invaded Norway and Denmark in early April, 1940, ending the so-called Phony War phase which marked the outbreak of World War II in Western Europe.  While the invasions were ultimately successful, the Norwegian operation triggered the Battle of Narvik, when a Royal Navy flotilla was able to knock out a number of German destroyers.  In this drone video by Maximus_NO, you'll get an aerial view of the remains of the Georg Thiele, which was scuttled here when it ran out of ammunition.
