Man who foiled Nazi nuclear plan dies aged 99

The leader of a daring World War Two raid to thwart Nazi Germany's nuclear ambitions has died aged 99, Norwegian government officials said on Sunday.

Joachim Roenneberg, serving behind enemy lines in his native Norway during the German occupation, in 1943 blew up a plant producing heavy water, or D2O, a hydrogen-rich substance that was key to the later development of atomic bombs.

Picked by Britain's war-time Special Operations Executive to lead the raid when he was only 23 years old, Roenneberg was the youngest member of Operation Gunnerside, which penetrated and destroyed key parts of the heavily guarded Norsk Hydro plant. ...

We’ll see, Jim. Coulda been Bernie Sanders getting some getback for Hillary’s dirty tricks. Or Dianne Feinstein trying to make it look like Justice Kavanaugh did it. Or transgender Muslim leprechauns protesting Trump’s border policies. Or...well, like I said, we’ll see. And chances are we’ll see that it’s liberals trying to derail the Republican candidates in the midterm elections. We’ll see.

Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake, who's been a target of Trump's ire, said the president should stop labeling the media as the "enemy" or verbally castigating political opponents.

"Words matter," Flake told CNN. "If he were to take a more civil tone, it would help … We all need to watch the rhetoric that we use. People hear them and then follow it ...Those of us in office need to keep that in mind. The stakes are too high right now."...

Getting back on track the Smithsonian magazine has an excellent article about: (How a Sneak Attack By Norway’s Skiing Soldiers Deprived the Nazis of the Atomic Bomb)

The article has quite a few pictures and is a lengthy article. The articles from this source, like this one, are usually quite well-written.

I'm a history buff, but nonetheless, I haven't heard of him, except for his book "War is a Racket." So thanks!

Mussolini doesn't inspire nearly the revulsion as Hitler and Stalin because he didn't murder enough people. And Jews had it much easier in Italy than in Germany.

Dear Neil, your absolutely right about FDR's admiration of Mussolini and his policies. Speaking of fascism and nazism, I'm sure curious to know how many Americans know the story and heroics of Maj-Gen Smedly Butler. Something tells me not too many people do, and that's not good.

Lest any gasp too much, the title need to be qualified: Even if Germany had a useful supply of heavy water, it's still doubtful they could've produced a bomb. This is of course with benefit of hindsight, and does not denigrate the man's accomplishments. Also, continued Allied air raids helped suppress production.

Re Fascism, "'I don't mind telling you in confidence,' FDR remarked to a White House correspondent, 'that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman'""

Right you are, Jimbo. No doubt that’s why your fellow liberals are hell bent on repeating the horrible errors of Nazism, fascism, socialism, communism, and every other totalitarian form of government. American liberals are the world’s leading exporters of blind ignorance.

[Joachim Roenneberg] Born in 1919 in the town of Aalesund, Roenneberg fled to Britain after the German invasion of Norway in 1940, receiving military training before returning home for several missions during the war.

After the 1945 liberation he became a radio reporter but rarely spoke of his wartime achievements. Later in life he gave speeches and lectures well into his nineties, warning against the destructive force of totalitarianism.

Gasp! I wonder if he got a chance to give lectures in the United States? Minnesota and other states around here, including Nebraska have large Scandinavian populations. Apparently later generations than me, failed to have been warned of such problems as the Fascists. World War II certainly got mentioned even when I was in grade school, and the causes for it.
