The Sledge Patrol

A WWII Epic of Escape, Survival, and Victory
by David Howarth.
In 1943 a group of brave Danish and Norwegian hunters carried out one of the most dramatic operations of World War II. Using dogsleds to patrol a stark 500-mile stretch of the Greenland coast, their wartime mission was to guard against Nazi interlopers - an unlikely scenario given the cruel climate. This is the tensely exciting true tale of how the men of the Sledge Patrol fought capture or death in desolation by outwitting and outlasting the enemy. A saga of human skill, faith, and endurance - and one of the most remarkable allied victories ever recorded.
