This series was conceived as a way of setting the record straight after the content of the 1965 film "The Heroes of Telemark" had failed to give the public a true picture of what had actually happened in the British-sponsored, Norwegian-executed raids to destroy or disrupt the German effort to produce heavy water in occupied Norway for the Nazi atomic-weapons programme. It was intended that this series ought to dispel the war-comic sensationalism surrounding the raids and give to the viewing public the real story, which is far more harrowing than the partly-fictionalised events depicted in the 1965 film.
