Liv Grannes from Mosjøen became Norway's highest decorated woman after World War II. But her achievements, and Stalin and Churchill's false flag operation in Helgeland, disappeared in the darkness of history. Liv kept her moral compass through near-impossible choices during a war filled with sacrifice, betrayal, fraud, and tragedy. She was called Jeanne D'Arc of the North by the British, whereas in Norway, her history was never revealed - until now.
