Description
In March 1943 a team of expatriate Norwegian commandos sailed from the Shetland Islands in northernmost Britain for Nazi-occupied Norway. Their mission was to organize and support the Norwegian resistance, but they were betrayed. Only one man survived the ambush set by the Nazis. Wounded, hunted, and near death from exposure and exhaustion, Jan Baalstrud was taken in by two fishermen's wives—the first of many Norwegians who would risk their lives and their families to help him. In David Howarth's gripping, classic account from 1955, Baalstrud endures blizzards, an avalanche, crippling frostbite, gangrene, snow blindness, and delirium on his way to neutral Sweden, aided only by luck, hardheadedness, and the courage of his countrymen. Stephen Ambrose placed We Die Alone among a handful of books that he would return to and reread in a single sitting, calling it "a book that I absolutely cannot put down until I've finished it and one that I can never forget."
