Don Drews – Akershus Castle, Oslo Norway

Norwegian King Haakon V built Akershus Castle in 1290 A.D. to protect Oslo from maritime attack, notably Sweden. Never captured in battle, it also served as a Norwegian prison. Without combat, Akershus Fortress was surrendered to occupying Axis forces (1940 – 1945). It serves as a functioning military area and museum today.
