The sledge patrol ”Sirius” has through almost 60 years claimed Danish sovereignty in the vast, impassable and barren territory in North and Northeast Greenland. The book invites you along with Denmark’s smallest and most distinctive military unit. Twelve soldiers. Seventy-eight huskies. Six sledges.

With magnificent photos and a captivating story, the reader is introduced into the thrilling universe of the sledge patrol where you get a real life impression of what it is like to be a Sirius-man and the harsh environment they operate in.
