“This non-fiction story is more riveting, captivating, and exciting than any fiction author can write. In search of a lost cargo plane on the ice cap of Greenland, a B17 crashes with 9 people aboard. In a second rescue mission a Grumman Duck (an amphibious plane) disappears in the milky sky of Greenland. Zuckoff gives us a harrowing and nailbiting WW II story of hope, despair, perseverance, heroism, and survival and a contemporary account of how some volunteers are trying to recover the Grumman Duck and to bring home the remains of it's crew. You'd better get 'Lost in Shangri La' then 'Frozen in Time (in Greenland.' Great 5 star book.”
-- Jean-Paul Adriaansen, Water Street Books, Exeter, NH


Description

When a cargo plane goes missing over the Greenland ice cap in November 1942, a B-17 is dispatched on a perilous search-and-rescue mission that ends in disaster when the plane crashes into a fogged-out glacier. Almost three weeks later, the U.S. Coast Guard learns that contact has been made with the B-17 crew, who are taking refuge in the plane's broken tail. The Coast Guard begins rescue efforts, successfully extracting two of the B-17 survivors and promising to return for the rest. But as the brutal winter ravages the savage Arctic wilderness, the odds of saving the remaining men rapidly diminish. Out of options, they have no choice but to try and survive alone on the ice cap.

Into this narrative of endurance against all odds, bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff weaves a breathtaking account of his 2012 journey with a private crew to recover the wreckage of the crashes and the bodies of the victims entombed in the ice, finally piecing together this epic tale of adventure, resilience, and courage.
