This book is about the crash of a Canadian CC-130 Hercules military transport near the remote listening point near the North Pole. Temperatures reached about -70 degrees celsius and blizzard conditions made for a very severe environment. It's the story of those rescued as well those trying to rescue them in the worst artic conditions. I read this book because I worked with one of the survivors. He had a picture of the crash at his desk and one day I asked him about it and he told me the story. His version wasn't as harrowing as this book and I believe he was being modest about the whole incident. I found the book interesting because I knew one of the survivors and also because I learned a lot about artic survival training and what are considered routine jobs by the military can also put your life at risk. The story of the various rescue attempts provides for a dynamic story that keeps you reading.
