In 1942, the Nazis were racing to build an atomic bomb. They had the physicists. They had the will. What they didn't have was enough "heavy water," an essential ingredient for their nuclear designs. That changed when they occupied Norway and took control of Vemork hydroelectric plant, the world's sole supplier of heavy water.
Join best-selling author Neal Bascomb as he shares highlights from his extensively researched new book, The Winter Fortress, about the daring and successful commando raid on Vemork.
Learn the incredible true story of how the British Special Operations Executive brought together a brilliant scientist and eleven refugee Norwegian commandos, who, with little more than parachutes, skis, and Tommy Guns, would destroy Hitler's nuclear ambitions and help end the reign of the Third Reich.
