Spent a lot of time discussing the weather conditions and not enough time connecting the dots. Like when the end of the story came so suddenly. Left us guessing whether or not they made it over the lake safe and sound. Also the patrol showing up and without contacting them starting shooting from a great distance.Some of the points (which he pointed out before hand) were found to be unbelieveable. The conditions in which he went through were hard to fully understand since details were left out (like when he was in the 4' hole and had frozen ground all around him and could not move) how did he deal with body waste?When they carried him over the mountains only to take him back without proper equipment in todays world one would have found a place to leave him safe rather then take him back over the mountains. That in it self was totally unbelieveable and then to leave him for weeks because of a snow storm not being able to get back to him leaving him in a hole with no food seem out of place since they were able to carry him over and back climbing 3000 feet both times in a snow storm!! Seems like the story had some issues with a number of us and the details were not correct.
The story / mission was bound to fail given the conditions of the area but the most disapponitment is in the Title "We Die Alone"It would indicate that he would have died alone which we know is not the caseThe movie that was made on this story is titled " Nine Lives" and was up for an award.Given the details shared "Nine Lives" is more fitting.
do not know
Its to bad that there was not more details of the mission and the lay out of the country side along with greater details of the weather of the region. This with how the Germans invaded the country and why they were so hell bent on finding one man. After all what could one man acomplish against the odds he was facing.Where was his support form England and what did they do for him upon his return?The story was could have been expanded to give readers a chance to fully get into the mission and why it was so important that they send in a team to try and accomplish it against all odds of failure starying them down.
