During the darkest days of World War II a band of twelve men sailed from England on a dangerous mission–to organize the resistance movement in Nazi-occupied Norway. They braved the Arctic elements only to be betrayed and ambushed on their native shores. Eleven men were captured. Only Jan Baalsrud escaped. His impossible journey to freedom is chronicled in this fascinating book. This new edition features an introduction by best-selling historian Stephen E. Ambrose. Paperback.
