This is coolbert:
Vidkun Quisling from that era of the Second World War [WW2] I was aware of. A man whose degree of treachery is legend, the word "Quisling" signifying traitor.
Collaborationist Norwegian politician, defense minister at the time of WW2 BUT IN CONTACT WITH THE GERMAN AND ENGAGING IN MACHINATIONS TO THE DETRIMENT OF HIS OWN NATION, PRIOR TO THE GERMAN INVASION OF NORWAY, 1940.
"The diaries: Quisling sealed Denmark's WWII fate"
"The decision to occupy Denmark was taken at a meeting in Berlin on December 17, 1939 – three and a half months after World War II broke out and almost four months before German troops invaded the country on April 9, 1940. A series of personal meetings between Norway’s Fascist politician Vidkun Quisling and Adolf Hitler led to the decision."
"Quisling was adamant that Hitler should deny Britain access to the northern Norwegian town of Narvik, and thus be able to control a Norway rich in raw materials. Quisling himself planned to lead a political coup and open Norway up for German naval bases."
So great was the hate and anger directed at Quisling in the aftermath of the war, the Norwegian executing Vidkun and some of his followers for collaboration and treason, THE FIRST EXECUTIONS IN NORWAY IN ONE HUNDRED FORTY YEARS!
