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.
We Die Alone is an astonishing true story of heroism and
endurance. Like Slavomir Rawicz's The Long Walk, it is also an
unforgettable portrait of the determination of the human spirit.
