This week in Unsung Heroes, our video series celebrating remarkable player tales in Battlefield V, we look towards the resistance fighters of Norway. In 1943, these fearsome patriots teamed with British commandos to cripple the German war effort, and in this episode we’ll we see how one saboteur loads up her rifle and straps on her skis in a bid to prevent Hitler harnessing the powers of nuclear energy.
Battlefield V’s single-player War Stories shed light on little-known but nonetheless fascinating corners of history, and this one is no different. Deep in the forests of Norway, occupying Germans have taken over a Norwegian hydroelectric plant with the aim of producing heavy water; a type of liquid containing higher levels of deuterium than regular water. This was a vital element in Hitler’s nuclear programme, and would eventually help the German war machine develop nuclear weaponry.
Not only was this mission considered by the British Special Operations Executive as the most important act of sabotage in all of World War II, but when the Germans later moved the remaining heavy water to Germany, Norwegian resistance forces sank the ferry carrying it. It’s probably fair to say they regret ever messing with Norway, and War Stories like Nordly let you experience for yourself exactly why.
We celebrate the contributions from all kinds of Battlefield V players, continuing with tales of bravery in the War Stories solo campaign.http://PCGamesN.2.vu/PCGNBFVSVEP4
