9 April

This morning I watched an excellent Danish film called "9 April" about the German invasion of 1940. It is the first film I have watched featuring bicycle troops-
It was really interesting to see the drills and tactics of bicycle mounted infantry depicted,including them moving through a wood.It ends with interviews featuring  Danish veterans talking about their experience of 1940.The film is currently available on Amazon Prime.Well worth a watch and seeking out on dvd if you don't have Amazon Prime.


  1. Thanks for the heads up on this. I've so far watched it up to the bug out from the frontier (I don't think that'll spoil the plot for anyone!) and it's pretty impressive.

  2. Tradgardmastare,

    I finally managed to watch this yesterday ... and thoroughly enjoyed it. It would make an excellent mini-campaign for AIRFIX BATTLES.

    All the best,
