Hide / Show Abstract

Denmark was occupied by Germany during the Second World War but came through the war without major destruction or loss of life unlike, for example, Poland, the Baltic States and the Soviet Union. Denmark received post-war help from the U.S., so-called Marshall Aid, for reconstruction and development.
