I am slowly reading my way through Finlands War of Choice since I know very little of what went on in the Eastern Front (in regards to actual books I have read) and found this topic to be quite interesting. Some initial surprises thus far have been how the SS Nord (i believe) unit routed in its first combat as (contrary to popular beliefe) the unit was not well trained or equipped and it took great strains by the German Officers to stop the troops retreating to the West. Anyways, my question here is, given the great fear Hitler had of Norway being invaded (he moved a lot of troops meant to be used in Finland to Norway as he feared an invasion there by the British) why didn't the British Invade it earlier in the war? Hitler seemed to think that it was the weak point in Festung Europe, but did the British actually have any plans or notions of invading? I am aware they performed some Commando Missions there, but was there ever any thought of invasion?
