Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This book tells the story of a person named Jan Baalsrude, and his incredible story of survival, risks, and sacrifices made by him and the brave people that helped him evade capture during the WWII. He and the rest of his wounded commando team would much rather die than surrender to the Nazis.

They had a mission of secretly sneaking behind enemy lines and capturing an airbase to enable reinforcements. Part of his team had surrendered and had been horrifically tortured, so that made his decision to flee rather than surrender. He survived through icy seas, blizzards, avalanches, and finally too injured to walk on, was carried on by fellow allies. Will he escape the pursuing Nazis? And if he does will he then die of infection, frostbite, or disease?

I greatly recommend this book to any person who enjoys historical fiction with action, suspense, and fear. All in all, I think that this book deserves a 5 out of 5 stars because of the way David Howarth portrays his incredible survival.
