9Apr40: Norge angrepet! is dedicated to ...
A. the people of Norway, who suffered, endured, and fought so bravely as our allies in World War 2; who are among our best and most steadfast friends and allies in the world now; and who have allowed me to live in Norway to be father to my little Norwegian-Americans,
B. Norway's army, navy, merchant marine, air force, and resistance servicemembers who, after the initial shock of Nazi invasion, served and fought so hard, intelligently, and effectively alongside our other Allied servicepeople,
C. my long-suffering friends, the members of our Ares games club here in Oslo, and
D. my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna in the hope they and all our children never have to suffer and die in another world war..
... along with my personal thanks to Unni Berge and the historians of the excellent Norwegian Armed Forces Museum in Akershus Festning/Fortress and to Lørenskog and Skedsmo libraries'/bibliotekers librarians, as well to wargamers and historians Fred Forde, Jack Greene (designer of the first Norway 1940 game, which is being revised and republished), and Eivind Vetlesen and Yngve Bækholt (the Norwegian designers of the excellent Kampen om Norge game, which has historical events/factors - and individual warship - cards to enliven play), for their advice and historical research assistance.
The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war. (LRC)
