Summary We Die Alone ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF 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

Summary We Die Alone ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF D three compatriots plan to smuggle themselves into their homeland by boat spend the summer recruiting training resistance fighters launch a surprise attack on a German airbase But he's betrayed shortly after landfall A uick fight leaves Baalsrud alone trapped on a freezing island above the Arctic Circle He's poorly clothed one foot entirely bare has a headstart of only a few. I loved this book It s about Jan Baalsrud a Norwegian He begins WWII as a courier between Stockholm and Oslo gets caught by the Swedes imprisoned and then manages to make his way to England and join a group of other Norwegians being trained to return to their country and fight the Nazis That s where the book begins with Jan and the other men on his mission approaching the Norwegian coast Their plan is to hide their sabotage gear train local groups to resist the Nazis and then attack a German airfield that s wrecking havoc on convoys between England and the Soviet Union But their plans fall apart pretty uickly and Jan soon finds himself alone in the snow with nothing but his clothing his pistol and one boot What follows is how he survives and eventually makes it back to Sweden with a lot of help along the way I was initially interested in this book because of its title I like titles with the words like death or die or dead in them when I submit title suggestions to my publisher the list usually has at least one that includes dead or death but so far they ve chosen something else But the title isn t entirely accurate Jan doesn t die comes close several times And the people who do die don t die alone there s usually at least a gestapo agent around But enough about the title Jan is brave and resourceful and he can ski like something else But then events leave him gradually and at the mercy of others and the tough commando becomes vulnerable Howarth did a wonderful job of finding an amazing story researching it thoroughly and then writing it in a way that uses good principles of storytelling so that this true story reads like a novel We Die Alone is one of those books I recommend for just about everyone Readers that enjoy Unbroken or The Long Walk may be especially interested in adding this to their to read list

    (E–pub/Pdf) We Die Alone AUTHOR David Howarth Amazing story badly written Howarth takes what should be a fascinating account of a man's survival and manages to make it almost unbearable to read because of the book's lack of organization and sloppy sentence structure I admit that I was also only able to read it a bit at a time because Jan's story is so painful to read I rated the book on
