The Winter Fortress: The Epic Mission to Sabotage Hitler's Atomic Bomb
- By: Neal Bascomb
- Narrated by: Chris Sorensen
- Length: 14 hrs and 7 mins
It's 1942 and the Nazis are racing to be the first to build a weapon unlike any known before. They have the physicists, they have the uranium, and now all their plans depend on amassing a single ingredient: heavy water, which is produced in Norway's Vemork, the lone plant in all the world that makes this rare substance. Under threat of death, Vemork's engineers push production into overdrive. For the Allies, the plant must be destroyed.
Needs a different narrator!!!!
