Quisling: A Study in Treachery

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, May 27, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 452 pages
The word 'Quisling' is used all over the world as a synonym for traitor or treachery. The original Quisling - the man behind the word - was a Norwegian army officer of exemplary merits who earned notoriety when he collaborated with the German enemy on the first day of Norway's entry into the Second World War. The first Quisling - what was he like, and with what justification does he carry the heavy burden of his fame? This book, abridged from a two-volume study in Norwegian, is unique in drawing on a comprehensive body of source material from Nordic, German, Italian and Russian archives, and from family archives now in the United States.

No he leido el libro sobre Quisling; sin embargo conocí en Canarias al que fuera su secretario: el barón HARALD FRANKLIN KNUDSEN quién también escribió sobre el particular un libro cuyo título reza así: I WAS QUISLING'S SECRETARY.
Por entonces yo era fotógrafo y propietario del BAR PAPRIKA situado en el Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife (Canarias), lugar al que asistía cada día el Sr. Harald Franklin.
