December 1941. German U-Boats dominate the war in the North Atlantic and Britain is desperate for a breakthrough in cracking their naval codes. The admiralty needs an intelligence pinch, and a Kriegsmarine shore-based wireless station in the Norwegian town of Vågsøy is the target. Lieutenant Robert Bolt and his section of hand-picked commandos, led by the tough and uncompromising Corporal Sam Butcher, are tasked with the secret mission.

Just hours before a major combined operations assault on the town, they are launched from a submarine with orders to silently take control of the wireless station, kill the operators and pinch the codes before a full commando force lands.

But the Germans have a plan for such an eventuality, and Bolt and his men will need to be at their most ruthless if they are to get the codes without compromising their fellow soldiers.
