This vivid new World War II narrative by the author of Lost in Shangri-La reminds us that the tragedies and heroics of war don't always take place on a battlefield. Frozen in Time recounts the unfolding story of three Arctic air disasters and the multiple attempts to rescue their survivors and the remains of those who died. It begins with the November 1942 crash of a U.S. cargo plane on the Greenland Ice Cap. Within days, a B-17 and Grumman Duck amphibious plane on rescue missions fell victim to the blinding storms and shifting winds of the frozen north. The stories of persistence and survival that follow, however, are perhaps the most gripping parts of this book. One of the most arresting WWII books of recent years; a natural for readers of Jon Krakauer and similar authors.
