free read We Die Alone ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB If this story of espionage survival were a novel readers might dismiss the Shackleton like exploits of its hero as too fantastic to be taken seriously But respected historian David A Howarth confirmed the details of Jan Baalsrud's riveting tale It begins in the spring of '43 with Norway occupied by the Nazis the Allies desperate to open the northern sea lanes to Russia Baalsru. This true WWII tale starts fast Without much buildup it has an almost cinematic approach as we zero in on a little boat heading toward Norway from the Shetland Islands in 1943 The men are impersonating fishermen but are really aiming to help the Norwegians with the Nazi occupation that has overtaken their land Norway was neutral but that didn t bother the Germans Then BAM The action begins as the men are betrayed uislings ruled the day He knew what it meant to be disloyal to the Germans or rather to be caught at it the concentration camp for himself and perhaps for his wife as well the end of the little business he had begun to build up the end of his safety was so easyAs the book s subject goes into survival mode with a goal of somehow making his way to Sweden it s a page turner for the reader For one thing who can he trust Average Europeans had to choose between saving their own lives or risking those lives for others A tight line to follow But when a man s mind is numbed by sudden disaster he acts less by reason than by reflexThis survival tale is so extraordinary that to be honest I didn t really believe it had happened Anyone can tell a tale of their war adventures and who is to say it did or didn t happen But the detail and the names of the heroesheroines won out in the end and I started to cheer for a happy resolution While this is a story of bravery and of hope it s also a story of fear The fear of the isolated villagers who could lose their homes and families if their clandestine activities are discovered The fear of Jan the man on the run if his goal to survive ends up in others being killed The fear of average fishermen of average workers of average Norwegians who wondered if they had done enough to put up a fight against the occupiersBy the time I reached the end I wanted an extra epilogue so the book wouldn t have to endBook Season Winter snow caves

free read We Die Alone ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Hundred yards on his Nazi pursuers leaves a trail of blood as he crosses the snow How he avoids capture ultimately escapes revealing that much spoils nothing in this white knuckle narrative is astonishing stuff Baalsrud's feats make the travails in Jon Krakauer's Mt Everest classic Into Thin Air look like child's play This amazing book will disappoint no one John J Miller edit. Anything with endurance in the title gets my attention especially when it s a tale of survival Add that to the fact that I was planning a winter trip to Norway and this was the perfect winter read The tale begins 1943 in Nazi occupied Norway with a group of young men of the Norwegian resistance planning a mission to attack of German air base The mission comes to a bad end and three of the resistance fighters are killed leaving the central character Jan Baalsrud injured and fleeing the Nazis The ordeal he endures as he ultimately escapes almost unbelievable at times but convincingly documented is a harrowing tale of survival in brutal elements I gained a real sense of the unforgiving landscape of Norway by reading this book We Die Alone is also a tale of another kind of heroism for Jan is aided by villagers who risked everything to help him Still for much of the book Jan is alone and it made clear that it is only his incredible will that keeps him aliveThis is an absorbing read and I finished the book in almost one sitting Why read fictional thrillers when there are true accounts as amazing and inspiring as this
