By the man thought to be the inspiration for Ian Fleming's James Bond In this romantic story, Patrick Dalzel-Job tells how as a young man in 1939 he sailed Norway's Arctic coast with only an aged mother and Norwegian schoolgirl for company. In 1940, using his knowledge of the area, he moved more than 10,000 soldiers of the Allied North West Expeditionary Force in local boats, without losing a single man. Then, against specific orders from Allied Headquarters, he used his boats to evacuate Narvik just before German bombers destroyed it. He later commanded a team of Ian Fleming's "30 AU", often working far ahead of Allied lines in France and Germany. In 1945 he returned to Norway and found the schoolgirl from his Arctic sailing days, now a beautiful woman. Within three weeks they were married in Oslo.
