The story behind Hitler's plan of Germany getting the atomic bomb during WW2, and the heavy water sabotages in Rjukan, Norway, seen from four angles, the German side, the allied, the saboteurs and the company side.

Simplistic handling of subject casts doubt on series objectivity
The episode (#12) concerning Finland contains gross errors, misrepresents some subjects, grasps at straws at bewildering pace and, on the whole, seems tendentious, aimed at providing a biased view of the subject. It misses some very obvious points against the given view and interpretations of events, while providing a curious, single-threaded narrative that switches sides instead of providing objectivity using alternative explanations. This casts the whole series in a very suspicious light.
While the whole subject is definitely worth an objective look, I'm not sure this documentary series is up to the task.
