Excellent read, amazing feat of survival,
By A Customer
This review is from: We Die Alone: A World War Two Epic of Escape and Endurance (Paperback)
The author sets the scene very well and takes you into the story without delay. Four men set out to carry out sabotage operations in occupied Norway during WWII, arranged by London. An unfortunate set of circumstances leads to their discovery before they have a chance to even get going. This results in one man of Norweigan origin, on the run trying to evade capture.
Isolation, extreme temperatures, lack of food, lack of medical aid, constant real threat of capture and therefore death. This man appears to have survived on pure determination and the generosity of the people who helped "one of their own", despite risk of certain death and the death of their families should they be discovered.
A very good read
