Neal Bascomb delivers another nail-biting work of nonfiction for young adults in this incredible true story of spies and survival.

The invasion begins at night, with German cruisers slipping into harbor, 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 World War II: Hitler’s very own nuclear bomb.

When 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 young Norwegian commandos. 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.

From the Inside Flap:

THE NAZIS INVADE

The invasion begins at night, with German cruisers slipping up a silent fjord. Soon, planes full of paratroopers roar over the mountains, and in short order, the Nazis occupy all of Norway. They station soldiers throughout the country. They disband its government and institute iron-fisted rule. And at Vemork, an industrial fortress perched 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 BACK

When 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 parachutes, skis, explosives, and great courage, they will survive months in the snowy wilderness, elude a huge German manhunt, and execute two desperately dangerous missions. The result? The first strokes in what would become the greatest act of sabotage in all of World War II.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Nazi Hunters: How a Team of Spies and Survivors Captured the World’s Most Notorious Nazi

Winner of the YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award
Sydney Taylor Book Award for Older Readers, Gold Medal

"A gripping spy thriller about the capture of Adolf Eichmann... Bascomb’s book is so suspenseful it puts Robert Ludlum to shame." -- Tablet

"From cafés in Buenos Aires to the halls of the fledgling Israeli government, from false identities to secret drops, this story has all the hallmarks of a spy novel. Bascomb has a knack for turning complex detail into a suspenseful, heart-pounding narrative." -- School Library Journal

"This is a splendid example of fascinating storytelling -- with action, emotion, and nail-biting suspense—blended with significant historical events." -- Booklist
