The approach to Oslo along Oslo Fjord is guarded by a small fortress. During the invasion of Norway in 1940, the Germans regarded this defense as antiquated and sent the modern heavy cruiser Blucher down the fjord to cover the attack on Oslo with its big guns and to land troops.
Unknown to the Germans, the Norwegians had equipped the fortress with torpedoes and sank the Blucher. The sinking delayed the attack on Oslo long enough for Norway's Royal Family, parliament and cabinet to escape and for Norway's gold reserves to be moved out of reach of the invaders.
