We Die Alone
David Howarth
Travel & Adventure
Aug 1, 2018
An epic tale of survival against staggering odds, We Die Alone is one of the most astonishing and enthralling true adventure stories ever written. Set in Nazi-occupied Norway in March 1943, it begins with a four-man commando raid that goes spectacularly wrong and leaves all but one of the expatriate Norwegian resistance fighters dead or captured. The lone survivor is twenty-six-year-old Jan Baalsrud, and though he too has been seriously wounded, he manages to escape the ambush and takes off on an incredible trek into the wilds of the Lyngen Alps. David Howarth’s 1955 narrative is as singular as its modest hero—who, it should be noted, in later life always downplayed his own part in the story of his escape by asserting that “All I did was run away.”
