Using a campaign lightening warfare in the summer of 1940, the German army captured Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland and France. A time of occupation began for the defeated countries. Some residents accepted this with humility, while others, with the help of Great Britain, took to armed or other resistance against the occupiers. There were many who also saw the German victory as a chance to realize their own businesses interests and political agendas. This was facilitated by the fact that the victors began their occupation through seeking support from active fascist movements in the vanquished countries.
