I'm trying to pin down some details about a WW2 Scandinavian team (Norwegian?) that cross-country skied long distance from Russia with some type of military secret. My memory is hazy.... They skied many days under arduous conditions to deliver some crucial message or secret.
This story had an impact on me and I'd like to know more details. Can anyone refresh my memory and/or point me in the direction of more information?
One of the commando (or Norwegian Resistance?) attacks on the Norsk Hydro heavy water production facilities was launched by skis: there was later a book or movie account called Skis Against the Atom.
In early 1945, there was an OSS mission into Norway with the objective of interdicting the north-south railway and stopping shift of Germans to Oslo and then home (to fight on). The unit was called 'NORSO' Norwegian Spec Ops. Its leader was MAJ Bill Colby
