Overview

When Hitler’s invasion shattered Norway’s peace of one hundred years, Gunnar Sonsteby, a timid youth, was destined to become the legendary “No. 24,” whose exploits earned the highest honors Norway could bestow when it was restored after World War II. REPORT FROM #24 is Sonsteby’s own account of his underground activities during the Nazi occupation. He was a master saboteur and raider, leader of the 'slo Gang and chief of operations in the Norwegian Resistance Movement. It is a dazzling tale of one man’s defiant answer to tyranny and the story of valiant men and women whose ranks extended from a bakery in 'slo to a peasant’s hut on the Swedish border.
