The Saboteur by Andrew Gross

Into the Wild

Read The Saboteur Online Free - February, 1943. Both the Allies and the Nazis are closing in on attempts to construct the decisive weapon of the war.

Kurt Nordstrum, an engineer in Oslo, puts his life aside to take up arms against the Germans as part of the Norwegian resistance. After the loss of his fiancée, his outfit whittled to shreds, he commandeers a coastal steamer and escapes to England to transmit secret evidence of the Nazis’s progress towards an atomic bomb at an isolated factory in Norway. There, he joins a team of dedicated Norwegians in training in the Scottish Highlands for a mission to disrupt the Nazis’ plans before they advance any further.

Parachuted onto the most unforgiving terrain in Europe, braving the fiercest of mountain storms, Nordstrum and his team attempt the most daring raid of the war, targeting the heavily-guarded factory built on a shelf of rock thought to be impregnable, a mission even they know they likely will not survive. Months later, Nordstrum is called upon again to do the impossible, opposed by both elite Nazi soldiers and a long-standing enemy who is now a local collaborator—one man against overwhelming odds, with the fate of the war in the balance, but the choice to act means putting the one person he has a chance to love in peril.

Based on the stirring true story, The Saboteur is Andrew Gross’s follow-up to the riveting historical thriller, The One Man. A richly-woven story probing the limits of heroism, sacrifice and determination, The Saboteur portrays a hero who must weigh duty against his heart in order to singlehandedly end the one threat that could alter the course of the war.

When an author can entice one to read a book outside their usual genre likes, not only read but enjoy and appreciate the story, then I think he has definitely found his writing niche. I have read very little of what I call historical/spy thrillers, but loved his last one, so knew I had to read th...

3 stars. I liked this atmospheric WWII historical thriller, but didn’t love it. After reading Andrew Gross’ novel “The One Man” last year, I became a HUGE fan. “The One Man” is another WWII historical thriller and is one of my most favourite books! With that being said, I think I went into this n...

4 Stars. A team of men sent on a death defying mission to destroy heavy water (the component that was produced by the Nazis’ in World War II to make an atomic bomb) in a impenetrable fortress. It seemed impossible. The first teams that were sent to Norway failed. And then a team of Norwegian men w...

The One Man, by Andrew Gross, has to be one of the best WWII books I have read. The Saboteur is a tale of extraordinary bravery and survival and is a close second. Kurt Nordstrum (based on the real-life figure of Kurt Haukelid) was a humble yet courageous man, whose irrepressible will and sense of...

In 1943, a team of Norwegian saboteurs carried out a dangerous mission that destroyed the Nazis' source of heavy water, a fluid needed to produce nuclear weapons. The race to develop the world's first atomic bomb was on, and it was a race that would alter the course of the war. The heavy water pl...
