In the early morning of April 9th 1940 the Danish army was invaded by Germany. Defense was provided only by small and scattered border guards and the Jutland divisions who did not know about the capitulation of Denmark. The 4th company on the Jutland peninsula has defended its country against enormous odds. Units were unable to maintain defense in the Krusa area and capitulated in Haderslev. Then they found out that Denmark had capitulated before them.
