Publisher Comments:

Here is one of the most exciting escape narratives to emerge from the challenges and miseries of World War Two. 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 Salvomir Rawicz's The Long Walk, it is also an unforgettable portrait of the determination of the human spirit. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 272 pages, b&w photos)

This is the best survival story I have ever heard of. I feel that it rises above all others as the most encompassing tale of solitary determination.

It should be on the top of the list of all survival stories.
