Vidkun Quisling was leader of the Norwegian Fascist party Nasjional Samling - National Union - which he had founded in 1933 to counter Norwegian Communism. When the war broke out in September 1939 Quisling realised that Hitler's war plans needed Norway. He travelled to Berlin in December 1939 and met the Fuhrer. He did a deal - to take over as leader in Norway and stage a coup d'etat that would allow the Nazis to keep a military presence in Norway - he even gave the Germans military secrets on Norway's defence plans.In return, he believed Hitler would make him the 'Norwegian Fuhrer'. Quisling had betrayed his country and paved the way for the Nazi invasion of Norway in April 1940. Throughout the war, Quisling cruelly oppressed the people of Norway and urged them to fight for Nazi Germany. He even oversaw the execution of dissenters and collaborated in the deportation to Auschwitz of Norwegian Jews. As the war came to a close, this puppet leader became delusional. In the end, he was arrested and stood trial for his crimes. Today, 'quisling' has become a synonym for traitor.
