There was no significant "Battle of Denmark" . The Danish King Christian X and his Government surrendered only 2 hours after the German Army drove into Denmark on the morning of 9 April 1940. 16 Danish border guards were killed, The King and government thereafter co-operated with the Germans for the remainder of the war. Anyone who claims there was a battle is trying to re-write history. No Danish troops fought against the Germans at any point unless they were individuals who had left Denmark before the invasion.
