We Die Alone chronicles the WWII experience of Jan Baalsrud. Baalsrud was exiled from his home country of Norway after the Nazi invasion, but returned in March 1943 with a team of British SAS trained, expatriate commandos—their mission: to organize the Norwegian resistance.
Within hours of their arrival, however, they were, by either happenstance or betrayal, discovered by the Germans, and the entire team—save Baalsrud—was captured or killed. Baalsrud was shot in the foot during the ordeal, and what fallows is his harrowing escape attempt for Sweden by crossing fjords, scrambling over mountainsides and skiing across tundra. He experienced frostbite, snow blindness, hypothermia, and starvation, and only through the kindness of his fellow Norsemen—at their own mortal peril—did he make it to freedom.
This early copy, released the same year as the true first edition as a Book Club Edition by publisher The MacMillan Company of New York in 1955 and it is great condition with a tight binding an unmarked pages. It’s dust jacket is in fair condition with some small tears etc. but has been re-covered with a mylar cover, so its good to go from now on.
BE AWARE: Small Vintage items will add an additional $7.50 in shipping to any order. I know its kindof crummy. I really want to keep the price down on these items, but I also want them to get to you undamaged. Which costs a bit for packing materials and the shipment.
