More About This episode

Just a few weeks after Pearl Harbor, over 500 British Commandos raided a Nazi stronghold in Norway on a daring do-or-die mission. Their duty: to assault and destroy the Nazi fish oil factories being used to manufacture nitroglycerin, and to gather as much intelligence as possible. Relive the high-risk attack, as Britain used all three military services -- the RAF, Royal Navy, and Army -- in a combined assault that would serve as a blueprint for future Allied strikes on Nazi-occupied Europe.
