ww2dbasePer Albin Hansson was Prime Minister of Sweden four times between 1932 and 1946. He was known for his pro-German appeasement stance due to his fear of a German invasion. During the war, he provided railway access for German troops to Norway and Finland, which risked the close political ties between Norway and Sweden. When the news broke out, he claimed that the Swedish trains only carried wounded soldiers and soldiers on leave, which still was in violation of Sweden's neutrality.
