    I thought this was a very interesting book It explains really well what it was like to be on the Vidda in Norway and at the same time on a secret mission The perspectives are split up explaining what was happening in Germany on one page and explaining what was happening in Norway on the other page which made it slightly confusing for me to keep up with what was happening But overall a pretty good book

    This book is so fantastic It recounts the efforts of a small group of Norwegian resistance fighters to destroy the supply of heavy water being produced at the Vemork power plant outside Rjukan Norway during WWII I knew absolutely nothing about any of this and I read this book in one day because I simply couldn't put it down Yes you can get bogged down with the names and places and science but it can be argued that if this small group of extraordinary men had failed at two main missions perhaps Nazi Germany would have been in possession of atomic weapons and changed the course of the war This book is the YA version of Neal Bascomb's The Winter Fortress which I find interesting to write an adult and YA version of the same book He also wrote The Nazi Hunters which won a nonfiction award in 2014 Incredible amount of research; just check out the bibliography and notes pages I would recommend pairing this book with the graphic novel Trinity A graphic history of the first atomic bomb As a non science person who just liked to read about science this graphic novel easily explains the science behind atomic weapons

    I feel like really appealing nonfiction can make someone who dislikes or is disinterested in a topic find something worth grasping and that's what keeps them going This didn't do it for me It was too slow too heavy in relaying facts facts facts and there wasn't enough narrative thread or emotional depth to make me connect

    Excellent non fiction which takes place during WWII Most of the action takes place in Norway along with some in Great Britain The narrative reads like an adventure with plenty of history along with some science thrown in for good measure as this story is all about physics and atomic science There is a great deal about outdoor survival in some of the worst imaginable weather and how the hardy souls involved managed to keep up their strength spirits and courage while evading the Germans in order to carry out their plans Recommended for middle and high school as well as public libraries Adults will enjoy this also

    Fascinating book about Norwegians who worked with the British to destroy a Norwegian hydroelectric plant where heavy water was made which supplied the Germans during their attempt to build an atomic bomb

  8. Anita Prince Anita Prince says:

    Amazing that this small group of brave men was able to prevent Hitler from getting the materials he needed to develop a nuclear bomb Riveting

    With Sabotage The Mission to Destroy Hitler's Atomic Bomb Neal Bascomb magically transforms the story of a plan to ambush a heavy water facility into an addicting and action packed thriller After the Nazis invaded Norway during World War Two a group of loyal Norwegians that wanted to see their country free again went to Britain to train and tried to get involved in the war They would later be called onto two missions to ambush the supply chains for Hitler's atomic bomb Although the story's climax is unnecessarily intense it reveals the theme that sacrifices must be made to accomplish something greater

  10. Grant Rinckey Grant Rinckey says:

    this book is historical fiction and the theme of this book is never give up because they try and fail and then do it again This is why the theme is never give up
