Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II (Hardcover)
May 2013 Indie Next List
“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.”
