Force Benedict: Churchill's secret mission to save Stalin

Carter, Eric, author; Loveless, Antony, author

This publication tells the story of Second World War fighter pilot Eric Carter, one of only four surviving members of a secret mission, code-named Force Benedict. Sanctioned by Winston Churchill in 1941, Force Benedict was dispatched to defend Murmansk, the USSR's only port not under Nazi occupation. If Murmansk fell, Soviet resistance against the Nazis would be hard to sustain and Hitler would be able to turn all his forces on Britain
