The Cold War

In this room we tell the story about The Cold War and how Peder Skram and the other ships of the Royal Danish Navy were to operate in case of war between the Warsaw Pact and NATO. The period from 1946 up to 1991 has been called "the Cold War". During the period, Denmark's location close to the Soviet Union, Poland and East Germany meant, that it was a 'frontline state" where Bornholm was east of the "Iron Curtain", which was the boundary between Eastern and Western Europe. The Danish straits was important to the Soviet Union in particular for the use of the Baltic fleet, that must deployed out into the Atlantic and unite with the North fleet in case of war between the two military pacts.

Before the outbreak of a war, the Danish fleet must blockade the straits from enemy passing from the Baltic Sea with mines and then, lay invasions mines in front of the beaches of the Zealand island group. After those operations, the Danish fleet should prepare for, together with the West German fleet and naval air arm, a decisive missile attack against an expected landing attempt by the Warsaw Pact. This should happen, when such landing force was passing the island of Bornholm towards the Zealand invasion beaches. Before that, Danish and West German submarines were attacking the enemy force. If it´s possibly to reduce or neutralize about 1/3 of the landing force, it was expected that the attack will be interrupted and the hostile force not would have a sufficient forces, to stick to the landing area.

 

Peder Skram was the platform, where the Task Group commander of the Danish-West German naval forces was commanding the naval operations in the Baltic sea.
