Between June and August of 1945 various German submarines surprisingly appeared in Argentinean waters. What were they doing there several months after the end of World War II? Where did they come from? What was their route? The United States has confirmed their own worst fears: Nazi Germany has a last military and scientific stronghold in Antarctica: Base 211. Immediately Operation Highjump is put into action. While the official excuse for being there is to test military equipment in the extreme cold, the real and secret objective is to destroy the German enclave. The famous Admiral Richard E. Byrd heads the operation and with the approval of Secretary of Navy James Forestal, Admiral Chester Nimitz, and President Truman, he organizes the greatest military operation ever in the South Pole.
