Product description

About the Author

Mr. Haukelid was born in New York on May 17, 1911, to Norwegian parents and returned to Norway when he was two years old. He studied in the United States from 1927 to 1931, part of the time at the University of Massachusetts, and in Germany at Berlin University in 1937. After Germany invaded Norway, he joined the military and became one of Norways most decorated soldiers. He retired as a lieutenant colonel in 1973. During the height of World War II, Haukelid and eight other Norwegian commandos parachuted into the mountains on what seemed a suicide mission, to destroy a heavy water plant near Rjukan in Telemark, Norway. The raid inspired several books and movies, including the 1948 Hollywood film Heroes of Telemark, which starred Kirk Douglas.
