1989 Skis Against The Atom by Knut Haukelid, © 1989, North American Heritage Press, Minot, North Dakota, Soft cover, 244 Pages, 0-942323-07-6. First-hand account of heroism and daring sabotage during the Nazi occupation of Norway.

A dramatic and accurate tale of heroism and daring during the Nazi occupation of Norway. The book focuses on the race to destroy Hitler's heavy water plant with only a small band of Norwegian soldiers, led by Mr. Haukelid.

These heroes likely changed the outcome of World War II. The heavy water produced at a facility in occupied Norway was vital to Hitler's race with the United States to develop the atomic bomb. This exciting story presents an intimate account of the courageous and self-sacrificing services that these Norwegians performed for the whole free world.
