A review of Atlantic Crossing WW2 Series

Tour with Pål

This is a series about Norway during the war, especially evolving around the Royal family and Crown Princess Märtha and her stay in Washington DC from 1940 to 1945. During these years she became close friends with the US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and worked to promote Norway’s interests.

Atlantic Crossing sparked a lot of debate

This series has sparked a lot of debate recently concerning its authenticity. But does it have to be true to the original story? Is it not okay to dramatize and change the course of events? I mean, it is a fictional drama based on true events, and not a documentary. Or should the makers of this series have made it as close to the truth as possible?

Well, I just finished watching it, so I decided to make a review. In this review I give you some background information about Norway during the second world war, I talk about what is fact and what is fiction, and also give you my opinion about this show.

So whether you have watched it already, or are thinking of watching it check out this YouTube-episode.
