THE NAZIS INVADEThe invasion begins at night, with German cruisers slipping to harbor. Then planes roar over the mountains, and soon the Nazis occupy all of Norway. They station soldiers throughout the country. They institute martial rule. And at Vemork, an industrial fortress high above a dizzying gorge, they gain access to an essential ingredient for the weapon that could end the war: Hitler's very own nuclear bomb.THE NORWEGIANS FIGHT BACKWhen the Allies discover the plans for the bomb, they agree Vemork must be destroyed. But after a British operation fails to stop the Nazis' deadly designs, the task falls to a band of passionate Norwegian commandos--young men who love their country and long to free it from Nazi rule. Armed with little more than skis, explosives, and great courage, they will survive months in the snowy wilderness, elude a huge manhunt, and execute two dangerous missions. The result? The greatest act of sabotage in all of World War II.Learn More

An undertold story from WWII
I'd never really heard about this chapter in the Second World War. The narrative setting and pacing is top notch, the narrator did an excellent job I found of bringing the situation to life. I highly recommend this book.
My only mildly negative comment is that I wish that there was an audiobook version of "The Winter Fortress" which is the same story but published for adults. I don't find this version talked down to the listener, but it would be interesting to hear the difference. Alas, this appears to not be available yet, so I'll have to hunt down a print copy.
