The steep mountains and dense jungles of New Guinea swallowed up the wreckage of about 350 crashed Allied aircraft during World War II and few have been found. This story of the discovery, excavation, and identification of the remains of the pilots and crew of one B-24 tells in understated fashion the ripples of anguish sent out by this isolated tragedyfrom the effect on the recovery team and the Army forensic specialists in Hawaii who carefully assemble the few weathered bones to reveal their identity, to the victims' families, drawn again 39 years later into mourning. A slim though affecting look at a facet of war too easy to overlook. Mel D. Lane, Sacramento, Cal.
