Assault in Norway: Sabotaging the Nazi Nuclear Program
This book is the classic account of a legendary raid on the Nazi war program. By 1942 Germany had a seemingly insurmountable lead over the Allies in developing an atomic bomb. Contributing to this situation was its access to a crucial ingredient, 'heavy water, ' found in great abundance at a fortresslike factory in occupied Norway. Allied hopes of stalling the Nazi nuclear program soon focused on sabotaging the cliff-side plant- a suicidal mission. But a team of brave Norwegian exiles, trained in Britain, infiltrated their homeland and, hiding in the wilds, awaited the opportunity to launch one of the most daring commando raids on the second World War. Basing his gripping narrative in large part on interviews with the commandos themselves, the author recounts in vivid detail the planning and execution of Operation Gunnerside. -- from Back cover.
