The Danes were a divided people after their German occupation. Many simply went on withe their lives. The King remained as the nominal head of state while Britain made an invasion of the Faroe Islands and Iceland to keep them out of German hands and to protect their Atlantic shipping lanes to the Americas. The German occupation was very unpopular and that sentiment increased as the war drug on.
