A German NCO with the 7th Jäger-Division instructs Norwegian civilians on the use of a MG-42 prior to the Battle of Dombas in August, 1942. The Battle of Dombas would see both the 7th and Norwegian civilians, outraged by the Entente invasion of Norway, battle against Entente forces to prevent Norway from being cut in half. The battle would devolve into urban fighting and cause severe casualties on both sides. Although Entente forces came close to winning the battle, the intervention of the German XIV Panzer Corps, freed up from victory in the Battle of Hamburg, ensured that Entente efforts came to grief. The battle was the turning point the Norwegian Campaign, as the Entente was forced to withdraw due to increasing pressure on the Western Front.
