Mission Telemark Summary

Mission Telemark by Amanda Mitchison

Four teenagers attempt the most dangerous sabotage mission of World War II in this thrilling new adventure novel. Norway, December 1942. Following the German occupation of the power plant at Vemork in southern Norway, the British government has become aware that Hitler is trying to find a way to use the heavy water it produces to make a nuclear weapon. One mission to destroy the power plant has already failed and time is running out. Now the Allies' fate rests in the hands of four teenagers - Jakob, Freddie, Ase and Lars - who must survive for weeks in the freezing conditions of the Hardanger Plateau before they launch a sabotage attempt that will decide the course of the war. Stuck-in paper inserts bring to life the wartime experiences of these special Special Agents, from digging snow holes and butchering reindeer, to combat knives and behaviour under torture.

Mission Telemark Reviews

May look like a typical paperback at first glance, but it is in fact an adventure story filled with documents based upon historical items. * Bristol Evening Post *
This is a gripping, well-paced adventure for older readers and a useful reminder of what the real-life heroes suffered * The Daily Mail *
Altogether superior...boys in particular will love the carefully researched detail...as well as being well written, it is exquisitely produced book, filled with illustrations and fold-out inserts on everything from gutting a rabbit to how to survive a Gestapo interrogation * The Sunday Telegraph *
An exciting and much more wholesome period version of Robert Muchamore's Cherubs series, and the debut of a talented new children's author. * The Times *
The plot is fast, the characters engaging and Richard Colleridge's illustrations and inserts are a brilliant addition...a gripping thriller. * The Scotsman *
