Reviews

"Weaving together his typically intense research and a riveting narrative, Neal Bascomb's The Winter Fortress is a spellbinding piece of historical writing." --Martin Dugard, author of Into Africa and coauthor of the Killing series

"Neal Bascomb's The Winter Fortress is a riveting, high-action World War II thriller with nothing less than the fate of planet Earth on the line. Just imagine the horror if Hitler had gotten the atomic bomb? Writing with great verve and historical acumen, Bascomb hits the mark of excellence. Highly recommended!" --Douglas Brinkley, New York Times best-selling author of The Great Deluge and Cronkite

"What would have happened if Hitler had managed to develop nuclear weapons? In The Winter Fortress, Neal Bascomb brilliantly tells the extraordinary true story of arguably the most important and daring commando raid of World War II: how an amazing band of men on skis made sure Hitler never got to drop the ultimate bomb." --Alex Kershaw, New York Times best-selling author of The Longest Winter

"Brilliantly written, The Winter Fortress cinematically captures a commando team's efforts to destroy one of the most important secret facilities of World War II. Bascomb's riveting prose puts the reader into one of the more daring missions of the war and the Allies' efforts to sabotage a crucial aspect of Germany's nuclear program. An excellent read." --Patrick K. O'Donnell, best-selling author of First Seals and Washington's Immortals

"This well-told and deeply researched account sheds light on an aspect of World War II that is little known or remembered, creating a valuable history that will be beneficial for most collections." --Library Journal​

"An exciting, thorough account . . . Featuring excellent characterization and exquisite detail concerning a theater of the war (Norway) not well-mined, this will make a terrific addition to World War II collections." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
