We Die Alone : A WWII Epic Of Escape And Endurance Paperback / softback


We Die Alone recounts one of the most exciting escape stories to emerge from the challenges and miseries of World War II.

In March 1943, a team of expatriate Norwegian commandos sailed from northern England for Nazi-occupied arctic Norway to organize and supply the Norwegian resistance.

But they were betrayed and the Nazis ambushed them. Only one man survived--Jan Baalsrud. This is the incredible and gripping story of his escape. Frostbitten and snowblind, pursued by the Nazis, he dragged himself on until he reached a small arctic village.

He was near death, delirious, and a virtual cripple.

But the villagers, at mortal risk to themselves, were determined to save him, and--through impossible feats--they did.
