Sinopsis: “Riveting and poignant . . . The Winter Fortress metamorphoses from engrossing history into a smashing thriller . . . Mr. Bascomb’s research and, especially, his storytelling skills are first-rate.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Weaving together his typically intense research and a riveting narrative, Neal Bascomb’s The Winter Fortress is a spellbinding piece of historical writing.” — Martin Dugard, author of Into Africa and co-author of the Killing series
 

In 1942, the Nazis were racing to complete the first atomic bomb. All they needed was a single, incredibly rare ingredient: heavy water, which was produced solely at Norway’s Vemork plant. Under threat of death, Vemork’s engineers pushed production into overdrive. If the Allies could not destroy the plant, they feared the Nazis would soon be in possession of the most dangerous weapon the world had ever seen. But how would the Allied forces reach the castle fortress, set on a precipitous gorge in one of the coldest, most inhospitable places on earth?

Based on a trove of top-secret documents and never-before-seen diaries and letters of the saboteurs, The Winter Fortress is an arresting chronicle of a brilliant scientist, a band of spies on skis, perilous survival in the wild, Gestapo manhunts, and a last-minute operation that would alter the course of the war.
 
“A taut and peerlessly told adventure story full of thrills, derring-do and heart-stopping tension.” — Seattle Times
 
“Told with both historical and scientific accuracy . . . this book has rocketed into my pantheon of the top suspense-filled stories about [World War II], along with The 900 Days and The Colditz Story.” — Ethan Siegel, Forbes
 

From the Back Cover: Weaving together his typicallyintense research and a riveting narrative, Neal Bascomb s The Winter Fortress is a spellbindingpiece of historicalwriting.
Martin Dugard, author of Into Africa and coauthor of the Killing series

A riveting, high-action World War II thriller with nothing less than the fate of planet Earth on the line. Just imagine the horror if Hitler had gotten the atomic bomb? Written with great verve and historical acumen, Bascomb hits the mark of excellence. Highly recommended!
Douglas Brinkley, author of The Great Deluge and Cronkite

In The Winter Fortress, Neal Bascomb brilliantly tells the extraordinary true story of arguably the most important and daring commando raid of World War II: how an amazing band of men on skis made sure Hitler never got to drop the ultimate bomb.
Alex Kershaw, author of The Longest Winter

Brilliantly written, The Winter Fortresscinematically captures a commando team s efforts to destroy one of the most important secret facilities in World War II.Bascomb sriveting prose puts the reader into one of the more daring missions of the war and the Allies efforts to sabotage a crucial aspect of Germany s nuclear program.An excellent read.
Patrick K. O Donnell, author ofFirst SEALsandWashington s Immortals

Exciting, thorough . . . suspenseful . . . Featuring excellent characterization and exquisite detail concerning a theater of the war (Norway) not well-mined. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Descripción Head of Zeus, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s 1942 and the Nazis are racing to build an atomic bomb. They have the physicists, but they don t have enough heavy water - essential for their nuclear designs. For two years, the Nazis have occupied Norway, and with it the Vemork hydroelectric plant, the world s sole supplier of heavy water. Under threat of death, its engineers push production into overtime. For the Allies, Vemork must be destroyed. But how could they reach the plant, high in a mountainous valley? The answer became the most dramatic commando raid of the war: the British SOE 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. Based on exhaustive research and never-before-seen diaries and letters, The Winter Fortress is a compulsively readable narrative about a group of young men who survived the cold of a Norwegian winter and evaded the clutches of the Gestapo, to save the world from destruction.
