Operation Frostbite was a NATO Offensive on the Western coast of Norway with the eventual goal of liberating the Scandinavian Peninsula from Russia and CSTO . Operation Frostbite was the largest amphibious operation since World War II, and the first time in World War III that the US Marines were active in the European theater. Operation Frostbite was a cold and bloody battle that was costly on both sides, but NATO was eventually victorious thanks to NATO exercises involving such a scenario before the outbreak of the war.
