Polish soldiers fought in Battle of Narvik, we were taught in schools. But it seems in English there wer etwo battles of Narvik, both of which were naval. So, what the battle in which Poles did fought is called in English?!?!


Indeed, this needs some clarification. In most history books I read, the term Battle of Narvik is used as a synonym to franco-polish land operations in the area, not their naval support. Halibutt 11:12, 31 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Also, the very title seems a little misleading. I'm moving the page to Allied campaign in Norway.Halibutt 18:01, 29 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I believe that this and Operation Weserübung should be merged. Otherwise we have two article covering essentially the same action. DJ Clayworth 14:33, 3 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Well, since they are two separately planned operations, that happened to coincide, that's only natural, isn't it? To merge those two articles would be bad standard, and make references to the different operations a lot harder - and in the end, we would stand there with several articles again and people would have problem to know where to put what. See Operation Barbarossa and the Eastern Front (WWII) for a recent illustration of that problem. --Johan Magnus 21:52, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Indeed. I remove the merge-banner now.
