"Princess Martha fled the Nazis after the German invasion of Norway, escaping to the United States, where she befriended U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and lived in the White House. Some historians credit Princess Martha with helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2 and fight the forces of Fascism."
I am pretty sure that CP Märtha was a formidable woman, but crediting her with "helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2" is a little bit of an an exaggeration, is it not ?
Anyway, I hope the series ends up being available to US audiences eventually, as I believe CP Märtha and her connection to FDR are unknown to an overwhelming majority of Americans.
