This book contains two stories. One is the ennobling tale of death and survival in Greenland during WWII. Attempts at rescue result in deaths of some rescuers and entrapment of others in the relentless Greenland winter. No one gives up even in the face of great peril.
The second is the modern story of the attempt to find one of the rescue aircraft, a Gruman Duck, and perhaps the three servicemen who died on her. This effort was confused and argumentative.
I greatly enjoyed this well written book mainly because of the historical part but some of the modern story bordered on humorous. Those interested in aviation, recue missions, WWII, and Coast Guard history will find this book of interest.
Very interesting story and well written.
A story I was unfamiliar with. Now, it is, as if I was there myself. Thank- you for telling this story and honoring all those involved. Who needs fiction when there are stories like this?
Well written and researched. Anyone who enjoys factual stories of courage and heroism will enjoy this book.
