Zuckoff recaps another obscure but remarkable World War II survival tale from one of the world's most remote locations. He keeps the pages turning by weaving together two tales -- first, the story of a B-17 crew that crash landed on a Greenland glacier in November 1942 and the numerous attempts launched to rescue them; and second, the contemporary firsthand account to locate and recover the remains of one of the failed rescue attempts, a Coast Guard plane that lost all three lives on board trying to save one of the B-17 crew. It's hard to decide which of the two tales is more filled with teeth-clenching suspense. If you're like me, it won't take many chapters to feel yourself bound up in the fates of the people and missions that lie at the heart of this book. Nor will you stop marveling why Hollywood hasn't yet made it into an epic blockbuster.
