    We Die Alone: A World War Two Epic of Escape and Endurance.

    In March 1943 a team of expatriate Norwegian commandos sailed from the Shetland Islands for Nazi-occupied Norway. Their mission was to organise and support the Norwegian resistance. They were betrayed. And only one man survived a terrifying ambush by Nazi soldiers. This is the incredible and gripping story of his escape. Crippled by frostbite and snow-blind, hunted by the Germans, Jan Baalsrud, the sole survivor, managed to find a tiny Arctic village. There, delirious and close to death, he found villagers willing to risk their lives to save him. We Die Alone is his incredible story - an incomparable epic of survival in the most hostile conditions.

    This is the most amazing survival book I've ever read. How can anybody survive those conditions ? Imagine cutting off your own frostbitten toes with only a rusty penknife !

    That is amazing. Like that rockclimber a coupla years ago, a boulder crushed his arm and he had to cut it off with a knife. But keeping OT, thanks for posting, sounds like a good read
