Synopsis
A thrilling account of one of the strangest and most daring missions in American history.


In the final days of World War II, with the ravenous Red Army marching across Czechoslovakia, a band of American soldiers did something unusual. They went behind enemy lines and teamed up with a group of Nazi officers to save one of the world's rarest and most beautiful horses. The breeding mares of the white Lippizaner, whose bloodlines date back centuries, were in imminent danger of extinction. After witnessing scenes of death and destruction while fighting across France and Germany, the Americans decided "to do something beautiful" and rescue this fragile piece of world culture.

Based on personal interviews and new archival research, NY Times beststelling author Stephan Talty recreates the rescue mission in vivid detail. 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Stephan Talty is the author of six acclaimed works of narrative nonfiction, as well as the Amazon Single "The Secret Agent." His book "A Captain's Duty" (with Richard Philips) was turned into the film "Captain Philips."
