Work In Progress

This article is still under construction. It may contain factual errors. See Talk:Heroes of Telemark, The for current discussions. Content is subject to change.

The Heroes of Telemark is based on the actual mission (February 1943) in which Norwegian commandos infiltrated into Nazi occupied Norway and sabotaged the Vemork Norsk Hydro plant in the town of Rjukan in the county of Telemark, Norway, which the Nazis were using to produce heavy water to make a nuclear bomb. The movie changes the actual events for dramatic purposes.The movie's exteriors were actually shot on location in Norway in the wintertime and several of the actual particpants have small roles in the movie. Most notably the captain of the ferry ,at the end of the movie, was the actual captain of the ferry that the commados sunk in 1943.

The following firearms can be seen in The Heroes of Telemark (1965):

Not surprisingly the MP40 is seen being used by the German soldiers though not to the extent that some of the older WWII movies would show.
