The Real Heroes of Telemark: The True Story of the Secret Mission to Stop Hitler's Atomic Bomb.

In 1943, four men parachuted onto a Norwegian glacier, equipped with only the most basic equipment. Their mission was to prevent the Nazi regime from building an atomic bomb.

As in the BBC2 television series of the same name, The Real Heroes of Telemark tells the true story of this gruelling campaign, showing how these men's ability to survive in extreme conditions influenced the outcome of World War II.

Theirs is a journey which is retraced in Woodlore's Heroes of Telemark expedition, thus making this book ideal reading for those thinking of attending this course.

  Always loved this amazing tale of extreme endurance, Ray has painstakingly researched the true story not the glossy Hollywood version that barely touches on the extreme story of winter survival.

  I first read a library copy of Ray's The Real Heroes of Telemark book in the noughties after watching his TV documentary of the same name. The movie with Kirk Douglas was on at Easter, which made me think I would like to have my own copy of the book. I was delighted to find that I could buy the book directly from the Woodlore website and that the copy would be signed by Ray himself. I was also pleased to find that I was not charged any postage fees and the book arrived very promptly and of course signed. The book is a cracking read and gives an engaging and well written account of the spectacular bravery of the Norwegian men who helped change the course of history. It is also very clear that destiny played her hand in how the events unfolded from the moment that one of the Norwegian men captured a Nazi boat and sailed it to England. Thank you to them all and thank you to Ray for documenting it.

  I'm a patriot; I love history and bushcraft. This books covers all those subjects. Ray Mears has integrity and this shows in his programmes and books. This book tells the true story of Telemark. Remarkable feats of bravery and bushcraft that came together when the world needed them.

  Received the book well packaged and I'm sure my dad will love it for his Christmas, especially since it is signed as he is a big Ray Mears fan.

  Another fine read from Mr. Mears. This is one of my favourite Films and so was intrigued to hear how the Soldiers had actually coped with being dropped into enemy territory and survived in such harsh conditions. I was a little disappointed at the quality of the pictures illustrating the book in a section towards the middle. They are very dark, the one at the bottom of page 181 is mostly just a black mass. I did though buy this for 'the read' not for the pictures so am not too bothered. Maybe a later print will sort this out? On the whole very pleased and the 'story' of these real life heroes is an enthralling one.

  Since watching the Hollywood film with Kirk Douglas, I have always had a real fascination with the Heroes of Telemark story. This book however, gave me the real story and one which, was more gripping than I could have imagined. It is an incredible story and very humbling for myself because one of the leaders was only twenty two. I was down the pub getting drunk and playing snooker when I was that age. The research and archived information is second to none. When I finished the book, I started it again. Thank you Mr. Mears.

  I enjoyed reading The Real Heroes of Telemark. It's historically accurate and correct. A good book and one which should be read by all those interested in history-changing events. I give full marks to Mr Mears for producing a book that not only tells a gripping tale but one which teaches us a lesson or two.
