Publisher's Summary

Ray Mears shows how the success of a vital World War II mission depended on survival skills.Sixty years ago, four men parachuted onto a Norwegian glacier, equipped with only the most basic equipment. Their mission was to prevent the Nazi regime from building an atomic bomb. Now wilderness expert Ray Mears tells the true story of this gruelling campaign, showing how these men's ability to survive in extreme conditions influenced the outcome of the Second World War.The Telemark campaign was an example of the bravery and skill of the SOE trainees. The Norwegians transformed a military disaster into a triumph. This audiobook will tell the full story for the first time.

Critic Reviews

"If Ray Mears isn't a Great Living Englishman, then goodness me, who is? Ray is a persuader, poulariser and pragmatist in the Durrell-Attenborough-Bellamy tradition." (Robert Crampton, The Times)
