Based on the stirring true story, The Saboteur is
Andrew Grossâ€™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 single-handedly end the one threat that
could alter the course of World War II.
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 fiancĂ©e, his outfit
whittled to shreds, he commandeers a coastal steamer and
escapes to England to transmit secret evidence of the
Nazisâ€™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 Nazisâ€™ plans before they advance any
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 collaboratorâ€”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.
