This is the story of how Norway's gold reserves were taken out of the country in April 1940, under the noses of the Germans, in a gruelling cat-and-mouse journey through the snow by train, by lorries, and finally by three separate ships." Foreword by Sir Laurence Collier, K.C.M.G. 207 p. with textual photographs and maps. Octavo. Original red cloth binding, with gilt titles. Mild bump to the spine head. The dust jacket is clean and bright. Better than very good.
