In this awe-inspiring story, Jan Baalsrud of Norway, along with other resistance fighters, is sent from Britain to northern Norway in March 1943. Someone rats on them, and they’re ambushed with Jan, minus one shoe and a toe, escaping alone in the snow and cold. Helped along the way by a number of his countrymen, Baalsrud survives an avalanche, snow-blindness, being buried alive in the snow for over a week, and more before being taken over the border by the Lapps into Sweden on a reindeer sledge. Stuart Langton’s narration is an apt fit. His delivery is as spare as the text and every bit as intriguing. His voice has a force of delivery that makes this exciting and unbelievable tale one that the listener will want to hear in one sitting.
