We Die Alone: A WWII Epic of Escape and Endurance by David Howarth

We Die Alone: A WWII Epic of Escape and Endurance‘ by David Howarth (Lyons Press) is available at the specially discounted price of $1.99 on the US Kindle site. Also discounted at CDN$ 1.98 on Amazon CA.

Book Description

David Howarth’s epic tale of endurance chronicles the astonishing story of Jan Baalsrud’s harrowing escape from Nazi-occupied arctic Norway during World War II.

It begins with an ambushed commando raid that leaves all but one of the expatriate resistance fighters dead or captured. Though wounded, Jan Baalsrud, the sole survivor, takes off on a courageous, incredible trek into the wilds of the Lyngen Alps, while the Nazis pursue him relentlessly. He suffers frostbite, snowblindness, and a terrible fall in an avalanche. At last, delirious and near death, he chances on to a cabin, where the first in a series of remarkably brave and clever men and women come to his aid.

These “ordinary heroes” will eventually get the crippled Baalsrud to safety and freedom, and the amazing story of how they do it will fill readers with wonder at the capability of the human spirit.
