The incredible true story of Jan Baalsruds escape from the Nazis in the frigid wilderness of occupied Norway.

In late March 1943, in the depths of the Second World War, four Norwegian commandos arrived by fishing cutter in the cove of Toftefjord in northern Norway. They dropped anchor there, hoping to establish a base of operations for a campaign of sabotage against the occupying Nazi forces. But they were soon betrayed. A German boat attacked the cutter, killing all but one of the would-be saboteurs.

The lone survivor, Jan Baalsrud, who was wounded in the fighting, then embarked on the adventure of his life. He swam icy fjords, climbed snow-covered peaks, endured snowstorms, and got caught in a monstrous avalanche"all in an attempt to elude his Gestapo pursuers. More than sixty residents of Norways Troms District risked their lives to help Baalsrud, who was slowed by snow blindness and frostbite, on his perilous journey to freedom. Baalsrud and his rescuers,7; remarked the New York Times, displayed an unbelievable level of hardheaded toughness and resilience.7;

Defiant Courage is the amazing true story of Baalsruds escape, which inspired the book We Die Alone and the Oscar-nominated Norwegian film Nine Lives. Meticulously researched for more than five years, Astrid Karlsen Scott and Tore Haugs account brings out the truth behind this edge-of-your-seat real-life survival tale.
