Neal Bascomb is the New York Times best-selling author of The Perfect Mile and Red Mutiny, which won the U.S. Maritime Literature Award in 2007. A former editor and journalist, he has appeared in documentaries on the History Channel.
'A riveting, high-action World War II thriller ... Highly recommended' Douglas Brinkley. 'Bascomb's research and storytelling skills are first-rate ... a fine work' Wall Street Journal. 'This is a tale of daring beyond belief ... The book has it all: excitement, fear and the knowledge that these brave men really did exist' Soldier Magazine. 'At times The Winter Fortress reads with the pace of a thriller ... what emerges most strongly is the admiration for the valour of the ordinary soldiers' The Spectator.
