National Geographic: Untold Stories of World War II


Winston Churchill's spirited defiance

of the Nazis became a rallying point

for resistance fighters from

all over conquered Europe.

Young Norwegians eager

for combat joined the army

of exiles gathering in Britain.

There was no sacrifice that was

It's not that this easy

to get rid of us.

We'll be back. Just wait and see.

Our target is

the heavy-water production.

That was all. They said it's important

and we have to destroy it.

I knew that the heavy water

was important
