Gunnar Sonsteby, code-named “Kjakan” (“The Chin”), was one of the most prominent members of the Norwegian resistance movement during the Nazi occupation and responsible for countless spectacular sabotage missions and acts of heroism.
A master of disguise, with over 30 identities, he eluded the Gestapo for five years and became Norway’s most decorated war hero. Gunnar passed away May 10, 2012.
When Hitler's invasion shattered Norway's peace of one hundred years, Gunnar Sonsteby, a timid youth, was destined to become the legendary “No. 24,” whose exploits earned the highest honors Norway could bestow when it was restored after World War II.
