Fleischer, Carl Gustav (1883-1942)

General Fleischer was commander of 6th Division in North-Norway in 1940, and distinguished himself as an outstanding officer during the battle. He joined the King and the Government when they escaped to England after Norway’s surrender. Fleischer was at first commander of the Norwegian forces in England, but had to leave this position after serious clashes with the Norwegian government. He was appointed commander of the Norwegian forces in Canada and Norwegian military attaché in 1942, and finally as commander of the Norwegian military mission in Washington. Fleischer committed suicide in 1942, deeply disappointed with the Norwegian military policy.
