“A book that I absolutely could not put down . . . and one that I will never forget.”
Stephen E. Ambrose
“We Die Alone fills one with humble admiration for the stubborn courage of a man who refused to die under circumstances that would have killed ninety- nine men out of a hundred and with almost equal admiration for the many men and women who never hesitated to help him as best they could, knowing full well that death was the mildest punishment they could expect for their heroic ‘crime.’ ”

WE DIE ALONE A WWII Epic of Escape and Endurance DAVID HOWARTH; INTRODUCTION BY STEPHEN E. AMBROSE
We Die Alone recounts one of the most exciting escape stories to emerge from the challenges and mis- eries of World War II. 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 incred- ible 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 Slavomir Rawicz’s The Long Walk, it is also an unforgettable portrait of the determination of the human spirit.
David Howarth ran a spy ring during World War II. He was also the author of two dozen major books on history.
An enduring classic in the same vein as Slavomir Rawicz’s The Long Walk, which has sold more than 100,000 copies
Foreword by the late Stephen E. Ambrose, who counted We Die Alone among the few books he could not put down until he had finished them (the others were Cold Mountain, With the Old Breed, and The Long Walk)
