Hitler was gone...
But the ultimate revenge weapon remained
Nazi plans to develop an atomic weapon lay in ruins amidst the rubble of a secret Norwegian base destroyed in a daring Allied raid.

The Nazis would have their war-winning weapon, but without heavy bombers, how could they deliver it?

Two men unknown to each other travel a path towards world-changing history, a path strewn with U-boats, undercover German operations, and a stolen British Halifax bomber delivering the fateful atomic weapon to Britain.
