Frozen in Time LP: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II (Paperback)
The author of Lost in Shangri-La delivers an astonishing true account of endurance and bravery in the Arctic wilderness.
On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission became lost in a storm and also crashed. All nine men aboard survived. The U.S. military launched a second daring rescue mission, but that plane flew into a severe storm and vanished.
Frozen in Time is a spellbinding account of these harrowing crashes and the fate of the survivors and their would-be saviors. It also tells the story of a modern-day expedition to Greenland to find the missing rescue plane and the three heroes it carried. A tribute to the perilous and often overlooked work of the U.S. Coast Guard, Frozen in Time is a breathtaking blend of mystery, adventure, heroism, and survival.
