Howarth, David - Escape Alone. Collins Clear-Type Press, 1962. David Howarth became a war correspondent for the BBC in France at the onset of the 1939 war. After Dunkirk he served with the RNVR in the shetland islands and was closely involved with the smuggling of agents and arms into enemy-occupied Norway. Since then he has written several best-selling books, mainly about the men who fought their war in these Northern regions where Nature was as fierce an enemy as the Germans. Escape Alone, which made a very successful film, is a true story, originally entitled We Die Alone and is startling evidence that truth is stranger than fiction. 260pp, orange cloth, gold blocking, hardback. Illustrated with monochrome drawings by Leslie Butler; plus map at back. Slightly sunned spine, slight corner rounding and edge-wear, ex-school library (light stamp on front ednpapers), list (7) of pencilled questions on back paste-down, good, solid, clean reading copy; NO wrapper.
