Synopsis
A thrilling account of one of the strangest and most daring military operations in history.

In the final days of World War II, with the ravenous Red Army marching across Czechoslovakia, a wily band of American soldiers did the unexpected: they teamed up with the Nazis and went behind enemy lines to save the world’s rarest horses from imminent extinction at the hands of the Russians — including the exquisite white Lipizzaner, whose bloodlines date back to Genghis Khan. Based on personal interviews and new archival research, New York Times bestselling author Stephan Talty recreates in vivid detail the exhilarating rescue mission, led by unlikely heroes who just “wanted to do something beautiful.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Stephan Talty is the author of the best-selling Kindle Single “The Secret Agent,” as well as five acclaimed non-fiction books. The movie "Captain Phillips," with Tom Hanks, was based on his book with Richard Phillips. And Talty's next crime novel, “Hangman” (May 13), brings back the Harvard-educated detective Abbie Kearney.
