Neal Bascomb, The Winter Fortress (Episode #538)

KQED World: Fri, Aug 5, 2016 -- 3:00 AM

Based on a trove of top secret documents and never-before-seen diaries and letters of the saboteurs. Internationally acclaimed, best-selling author Neal Bascomb's The Winter Fortress is an arresting chronicle of a brilliant scientist, a band of spies on skies, perilous survival in the wild, sacrifice for one's country, Gestapo manhunts, soul-crushing setbacks, and a last-minute operation that would end any chance Hitler could obtain the atomic bomb-and alter the course of the war.
