An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II
Mitchell Zuckoff

On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane on a routine flight slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Four days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission became lost in a blinding storm and also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on the B-17 survived. The U.S. military launched a second daring rescue operation, but the Grumman Duck amphibious plane sent to find the men flew into a severe storm and vanished. Frozen in Time describes the 148 days the airmen endured during the Arctic winter, and the modern efforts to find the remains of the downed Duck’s last flight. From the author of the bestselling Lost in Shangri-La.
