Comments on: Norway’¬ís greatest war hero http://www.finnmark2007.com/diary/2007/04/02/norway-and-ww2/ Follow the experiences of the expedition team Tue, 25 Jun 2019 02:08:03 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.1 By: Hans-Arne Nordeng http://www.finnmark2007.com/diary/2007/04/02/norway-and-ww2/#comment-17 Hans-Arne Nordeng Mon, 09 Apr 2007 13:56:29 +0000 http://www.finnmark2007.com/diary/2007/04/02/norway-and-ww2/#comment-17 I would just correct some small details that was wrong in the story about Baalsrud. The name of the airport they should blow up is Bardufoss. He was never in Finnmark, just Nord-Troms and i did not walk for SEVERAL months. He walked to Furuflaten by himself, from there he was transported on a sled made there and was lying in a small cavern (or more a crack) in Manndalen for some weeks. There is also a newer book "Defiant Courage: Norway's Longest WWII Escape" about Baalsruds escape, with more details (and some say more correct), by Tore Haug and Astrid Karlsen Scott. The norwegian title is "Jan Baalsrud og de som hjalp ham".

Such heoic deeds are an inspiration for generations to come. The general story is correct but the details from Defiant Courage are more correct - as a small example I believe that while staying in Hotel Savoy (a small wooden hut that I visited in 2006) Jan was forced to cut off nine of his toes - the tenth had been shot off by a German bullet.

His career and exploits had been outlined to me one memorable afternoon in Furuflaten and I quickly jotted down all I had been told in a fit of enthusiasm. I intend to get hold of a copy of 'Defiant Courage' and discover more about this heroic figure. E.C.
