Are the exploits of Greek heroes based on fact? McDougall heads to Crete to find strength and endurance.

A seemingly minor resistance operation during World War II had an impact on the outcome of the war. Investigating that McDougall discovered seemingly unbelievable acts of endurance. Incorporating history of the war, Crete and fitness keeps the reader engaged on many levels. Are we all capable of such acts of strength and endurance? Modern proponents of Cross Fit and Paracour would say we are. What if we embraced the idea of being fit to be useful?
