Second World War fighter pilot Eric Carter is one of the few surviving members of a top-secret mission code-named Force Benedict. In 1941, as Hitler closed in on the Soviet Union, Churchill sent a task force to Murmansk, the only Russian port that had not fallen to the Germans. Now, for the first time, Carter tells how two squadrons of Hurricanes and their crew were dispatched on the Arctic Convoy with orders to 'defend Murmansk at all costs.'
