1 Sonsteby, Gunnar. Prepared from a translation from the Norwegian by Maurice Michael. REPORT FROM #24.
Barricade, New Jersey, 1999. 
192 pp, 8vo (8" H), soft cover. ISBN 156980141X B&w photographs. "When Hitler's brutal invasion shattered Norway's peace of one hundred years, Gunnar Sonsteby wanted to fight the Germans but he wasn't sure he could go: he was afraid his employer w ould not give him time off from work. This timid youth was destined to become the legendary 'No.24', whose exploits earned the highest honors his government could bestow when it was restored after World War II. (This) is Sonsteby's own acc o u n t o f his underground activities during the long years of Nazi occupations. He became a master saboteur and raider, the leader of the Oslo Gang, and chief of operations in the Norwegian Resistance Movement. This is a record of organization al s ag ac i ty a n d incredible valor - the chronicle of a man who faced torture and death every day of his life in the bitter years of Hitler's rule. Yet so modest and matter-of-fact is Sonsteby's narrative that it stuns the reader when he real ize s t hat he i s r ead in g a true story and not a James Bond adventure." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - one light crease down spine. Very Good+
