Abstract The handwritten subject headings, "I. / Norway" and "II. / North African Invasion" have been added to the top of page 1. Essentially the same headings have been handwritten into the text, which is an otherwise continuous question-and-answer transcript. Warlimont discusses German troop strength in Norway during the fall of 1940 and his prediction of Allied landings in North Africa some two weeks before it occurred. This document is a single-spaced, typewritten carbon copy of good to adequate quality on thin, browning, damaged paper.
