'Extraordinary story of a war hero's flight to freedom from the Nazis.' Daily Telegraph
Another Man's Shoes
Another Man's Shoes is a gripping first-hand account of a Norwegian scientist's escape from German custody during the Second World War after his arrest for spying. Written just after the war, Sven Somme vividly describes his 200-mile trek across the mountains, pursued by German soldiers, in a bid to reach Sweden and freedom in 1944.
Sven Somme was born in Norway in 1904. A marine biologist, he was Director of Fisheries at Gossen, near Molde, in Western Norway in 1944 when he was arrested while working for the Norwegian resistance movement. He died in 1961.
