Because they had been helping Germany: helped with the designs of panzers, had trained some of their officers, supplied them with raw materials. Answer Norway had a strategic importance to Germany so they used Denmark as a staging ground for the invasion of Norway, Sweden wasnt of any importance …to Germany if it was Sweden would have been invaded. Answer "Because they had been helping Germany: helped with the designs of panzers, had trained some of their officers, supplied them with raw materials." We did sell them iron ore, but i doubt we did any of the other stuff you mentioned, here are some reasons. Swedens own army during world war II was poorly trained and equiped(so Germany would be have been able to train their own troops better then Sweden could. and when it comes to tanks the swedish tanks where nothing compared to the German ones, our best tank would be classed as a medium tank. Wehn ti comes to why Germany didnt attack Sweden the answer is simple, they had planned to do so several times during world war II but they needed troops on other fronts so if Germany would have beaten the soviets Sweden could have been the next target.

Germany occupied Denmark, Norway and Poland. Although neutral, German troops were allowed across Sweden to Norway in the period after the invasion. Finland was a German ally following the German invasion of Russia in 1941, and German forces were present in Finland on that basis, particularly in the …far north.

Who occupied Germany apex= rhineland Yes, Germany was occupied by Germany during World War 2. It was not until after the war that Germany was split into four parts. Britain, France, The United States, and the Soviet Union each got a piece of Germany.
Germany was occupied by the USA, Great Britain, France and Russia yes yes it was
yes Are you sure? Maybe cause the Nazi Soldiers back than... . +++ The National Socialists (Nazi is an abbreviation of the Germanversion of the name) were German so they cannot be said to have"occupied" Germany. They did however rule their own country as aruthless dictatorship.

Which countries out of Denmark Sweden Norway Finland Poland and Germany were occupied during world war 2?
It is an absurd to think that Germany was occupied unless it was a self occupation kind od happening. Any way, in 1938 Germany joined austria by Anschluss to it's 3rd Reich and begin in 1939 it's occupation by taking over Poland (after only 2 weeks of fightings). in acording to the riventrop-molotov… agreement the ussr took control of some parts of Poland as well as the baltic countries. In 1940 the ussr begin fighting against the finish with the help of Germany over Finland and won some tertorial grounds. In 1940 Germany occupied denemark and Norway, In may fell belgium and holand. these victoried made it possible to atack France from the north-east. In June 1940 France was divided to two parts and the northern part was occupied by Germany eventhough there were not a lot of soldiers there- it was more a colabratory between northern fance and the 3rd Reich. In June 1941 begin Germany with help from the finish, Hungary and romanien to fight on the eastern front in order to take over the ussr and by that breaking the riventrop-molotov agreement, during that period the srd Reich occupied the baltic countries, the ukraien and parts of the ussr, but also found it's downfall.

No, Sweden took a neutral stand during the Second World War, so Germany did not invade them. PS: Just in case you aren't sure, a neutral stand is when a country neither goes to war or picks sides during a conflict.
No, Germany did not occupy Finland. Finland and Germany were brothers in arms during WW2. When Finland was forced to resign to the Soviet Union, one of the demands were that the Finns should throw out the remaining German troops in Finland. The Germans slowly retreated back to Norway in what is call…ed the "Lapland War". (MORE)
After World War II was over, the Allied troops occupied Germany anddivided it into four sections, each one controlled by one of thefour powers. The four Allied powers were the USA, the USSR,Britain, and France.
It wanted Norway's ice free harbors and access to iron ore from mines in Sweden. It invaded Denmark so it would be easier to invade Norway.
German forces invaded Poland in 1939. This is what brought Great Britain into the war. The British demand that Germany undertake to leave Poland was ignored so Britain declared war on Germany in September of 1939. The German occupation of Poland continued for most of the war that followed.
England's mainland was never occupied by Germany, part of its protectorate of Egypt was though, so was the English Channel Islands were as they weren't defended.
No , Finland was occupied by the Soviet Union for much of the war. If anything they were sympathetic to Germany on the grounds of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"
No, Sweden was never involved in WW2, other than they let the natziz pas over the country from Norway to Finland.
Denmark was occupied as a result of Weserubung, the invasion of Norway. This is in April 1940. It would remain so until 1945.
Sweden was not, as it was neutral. Finland was not, but it was an ally of Germany. Germany obviously was occupied by Germany.
Yugoslavia and Greece. Then Germany launched Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union. . Denmark, Norway, Holland, Belgium and France were also occupied as of 1940 and Poland since 1939.
Germany occupied Jersey, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney. To this day the islands are covered with reinforced concrete German fortifications. The islands remained occupied until after VE day, with Jersey and Guernsey liberated May 8, 1945, but the German garrison on Alderney did not give up until May …16, one of the last Nazi remnants to surrender.

Because of the riots, recent overthrough of the Third Riech and lack of food. Also the US was helping to restabalize the economy, like training wheels for Germany. And one more thing, the US did not completely occupy Germany, such as the Russians occupied Berlin until 1961, and the french also major…ly occupied a section of Germany including one 1/5 of Berlin.

The Nazis wanted the mineral ore in their mountain near Narvik, Norway. They also wanted to block the passageway in and out of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. They certainly did not want people escaping from Denmark to Sweden since it is so close to Denmark. They failed at that. The Danes managed …to get 700 Jews safely to Sweden. The Swedes welcomed them. Some Danes went there too but came back at the end of the war. (MORE)
Sweden is its own country. It is located between Norway and Finland on the Scandinavian Peninsula.
Because germany had been defeated in war (twice). The occupation was to insure that Germany would not attempt to regain the ability to make war, and to help preserve the lives of the residents of Germany. The nation had been badly damaged by the war, leaving people without shelter, warmth, food, clo…thing, or medical care. (MORE)
The Germans occupied Norway to secure the flow of iron ore. The Germans were dependent on this iron ore to make steel for their tanks and guns, submarines and artillery shells, all their munitions of war. The iron ore came from mines in the far north of Sweden. From there, it went by train west to t…he coast of Norway, where it was loaded on ships. By ship the ore traveled south down the coast of Norway to the end of the Scandinavian peninsula, then east into the Baltic Sea, and on to ports in the north of Germany. Germany absolutely had to have this raw material, or it would soon lose the war. Sweden, like Norway, was trying to remain neutral, but both had to cooperate with the Germans, or the Germans would certainly invade their countries and take what they needed. The British realized the complete dependency of Germany on this Swedish iron ore, and saw the vulnerability of the long supply line by which the ore reached Germany via Norway. The British actually invaded Norway first, for the purpose of interrupting the flow of the vital ore. Hitler's troops soon followed the British into Norway, and ejected the British forces. The Germans remained to insure that the iron ore would continue to flow without interference. (MORE)
The German Nazis occupied Norway, Finland, Poland but not Sweden. Sweden was a neutral nation and did not have resources Hitler wanted.
In and after WW2 Germany was occupied by the USA, Great Britain, France and Russia.
During World War II, the island was the scene of the famous Battle of Crete where, in May 1941, German paratroopers sustained almost 7,000 casualties, meeting fierce resistance from both locals and the British Commonwealth force, commanded by General Sir Bernard Freyberg. After seven days of fighti…ng and tough resistance, Allied commanders decided that the cause was hopeless, and ordered a withdrawal from Sfakia. During the night of May 24, King George II and his government were evacuated from Crete to Egypt. Principal source: Wikipedia (MORE)
The North half of the country, for the most part. I'll leave a Related Link with an image of the French territory Hitler acquired.
No, Sweden remained 'neutral' during the Second World War. I disagree with this, because even though they didn't fight alongside the Nazis, they still funded the Third Reich. (this is a third response) I disagree with the second response in that it was iron ore that was the by far biggest help. M…oney actually flowed the other way -- from Germany to Sweden in the form of gold. I cannot find any way to interpret the second response to be historically accurate. (MORE)
Denmark had some German heritage, and Hitler wanted to consolidate all German people into one great nation. He also needed a sea port
Yes, they were. Wrong!! Sweden was not occupied because all combatants recognised its neutrality - and made good use of it.
Sweden was a neutral country at the time, and wasn't expected to be aggressive. for this reason Germany went rigt by them, knowing they would be easy to collect later. also, to have invaded a neutral county would have triggered an immediate response from the "league of nations" although that is …far less of a reason (MORE)
1938 A nschluss plan to group all German peoplesinto one country is put into action; Munich Conference
No, at least not directly. There are trains running from Germany via Denmark to Sweden, though.
Never. German controlled all of mainland Europe execpt Spain, Portugal, its ally Italy, the Soviet Union and the little democratic dot in the middle of Nazi Germany called Switzerland. It's mountainous borders and strong defensive army make it difficult to invade.
France has a border which is very close to Britain. Only separated by 32 miles of water. The Germans also feared Britain because by the time Germany did invade France, Britain was the only country still fighting and Britain's spitfire was a breakthrough in RAF technology. America was also in trade w…ith Britain and France was surrounded by the allies of Britain. Britain could've attacked head on while America came from the North. Eastern allies stormed from the south and east. This is what happened and how Hitler lost the war. (MORE)
USSR held East Germany and East Berlin, while the UK, France, and United States held West Germany and West Berlin.
Technically yes. Sweden was a neutral country and actually maintained that status throughout the World War. For instance, when Hitler's forces needed to get to Russia, Sweden allowed them to use the Swedish Railways to bring infantry, Howitzers, tanks, anti-aircraft weapons. and other supplies, thro…ugh Norway and into Finland. German soldiers were even allowed to go throughout Sweden to get back home or where ever they wanted to go while on leave. Another thing Sweden did for Germany was sell it's iron ore. Now, as I said before it WAS a neutral country and didn't just help Germany. For the Allies, they fed military intel, trained Norwegians and Danes (Denmark) for battle in their home countries. They also allowed the Allies to use their Airports in the later years of the war. The Swedish Mathematician Arne Beurling actually broke their cipher! As for other contributions - They became a safe haven for anti-fascist and Jewish Refugee's. All of Denmark's 8,000 Jewish population also fled to Sweden, and many Norwegian Jews fled here as well.

No, Imperial Germany did try to take Iran in the First World War, but failed. In the Second World War, the British Empire and the Soviet Union occupied Iran for the oil, there was no Nazi German attempt to take Iran.

No. The only part of the British Isles that was occupied by Germany during the Second World War were the Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey, etc), which are near France.
Mainly because Sweden was neutral, and had resources that they were willing to sell to Germany- the big thing was iron and steel, which Germany badly needed. Plus, when Germany invaded the Soviet Union, Sweden (an ancient enemy of Russia's) provided some assistance and even allowed the Germans to us…e their trains. (MORE)
You have it the wrong way round. Germany WAS Nazi, and their armies occupied most of the countries in Europe.
No. Sweden was technically neutral during the war, but did do things to help Germany. Sweden has a lot of iron mines, so they sold this metal to the Germans (and Germany used it to make tanks, planes, ships and so forth). Also, Sweden has a long, bad history with Russia, so when Germany invaded the …Soviet Union in 1941, Sweden helped Germany a little bit. But Sweden did other things that Germany didn't like, such as help Jews escape the Holocaust. Once Germany started losing the war after 1943, Sweden started resisting German demands more and more- Sweden knew Germany was no longer a threat to them, so they were more able to resist. (MORE)
It wasn't really "occupied" it was more captured and divided into 4 areas which individually was controlled by the US, USSR, Great Britain and France.
Sweden is across the Baltic Sea from Germany and they do not share a border.
During World War II, Germany did occupy a couple smallBritish-owned islands off the coast of France and built somemilitary and concentration camps there. Otherwise, the country ofGermany has never occupied England. In the 500-600's AD, Germanic people called the Angles and theSaxons invaded England… and settled there. Over time, they conqueredthe Roman and Celtic peoples who were already living there, and theAngle tribe is where the word "England" comes from. But thishappened over a thousand years before "Germany" as a single,unified country existed. (MORE)
Just like West was occupied by Americans and France has got one ofthe zones of occupation in Austria.
