In March 1943 a team of expatriate Norwegian commandos sailed from the most northerly part of Britain for Nazi-occupied Norway.
Their mission was to organise and support the Norwegian resistance.
They were betrayed, and only one man survived the ambush by the Nazis. Crippled by frostbite, snow-blind and hunted by the Nazis, Jan Baalstrud managed to find a tiny arctic village.
There - delirious, near death - he found villagers willing to risk their own lives to save him.
David Howarth narrates his incredible escape in this gripping tale of courage and the resilience of the human spirit.
