Icelanders often pride themselves on the fact that the fight for independence was won with one weapon, the pen.  During the battle, no shot was fired and no blood was shed. Instead, our heroes wrote tons of articles, delivered multiple proposals, presented arguments, and participated in disputes for many decades. In steps and milestones like a constitution, sovereignty, and home rule the fight was won and independence achieved in 1944.
