The 12th Man tells the story of the Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud’s legendary escape from the Nazis during World War II. 1943 Norway – north of the Arctic Circle. Twelve resistance fighters, on a fishing boat carrying a cargo of explosives, are betrayed by a countryman and attacked by a German minesweeper. Eleven of the men are captured, tortured and killed. Only the twelfth man gets away. Jan Baalsrud escapes into the merciless winter – unbeknownst of the fact that his determination to survive will turn him into a symbol for the Norwegian resistance. A symbol people are willing to die for.   The legendary story of Jan Baalsrud’s escape remains one of the wildest, most unfathomable survival stories of World War II.
