Sabotage: The Mission to Destroy Hitler’s Atomic Bomb

Listen to this book in Granite’s OverDrive Digital Library

Written by Neal Bascomb

Sabotage is a nonfiction book that is so packed with action and intensity that you will not want to put the book down. It takes place during World War II after Hitler invaded and conquered Norway. Many people were forced out of their homes and left helpless. This obviously made the Norwegian people furious with the Nazis, furious enough to make them plan one of the most dangerous and risky sabotages in history in order to try to reclaim their country. They have to destroy a heavy water plant which Hitler is using to create an atomic bomb. To make things worse, they have to do it in the middle of winter in Tinn, Norway. All of these elements give you one of the most interesting, intense books you will read. Despite the intense nature of the book, there are even some funny moments that will make you laugh.

This book was written very well by Neal Bascomb, author of The Nazi Hunters. He has a way of writing that captures you inside the book, making you want more with every page. I personally really enjoyed this book and I think anyone else would like it also, although, at times it can be a little hard to understand. The writing can be a little intense and you really have to be into the book to figure out what’s going on. All in all, it’s a interesting book. I think those who enjoy intensity and action will really enjoy this true story about men who were brave enough to risk their lives in order to get their country back.
