Award winning journalist Alf Jacobsen relates one of the most incredible tales of the Second World War, when Royal Navy X-craft midget submarines attacked the mighty German battleship Turpitz planting high explosives beneath the keel as it lay in the fjords of northern Norway. X5 and her crew were never heard of again, and were thought to have failed in their operation, but new evidence by Jacobsen may point to them actually succeeding in their mission. This book is a fascinating read in to one of the secret missions of World War Two.
