Vanished:The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II

Wil S. Hylton

On September 1, 1944, a B-24 bomber carrying eleven men vanished over the tiny Pacific archipelago of Palau. Witnesses saw the crew parachute to safety, but the wreckage was never discovered and the men were never seen again. For 60 years, the U.S. government, the children of the missing airmen, and a maverick team of scientists and scuba divers led by Dr. Pat Scannon searched the island for clues. What really happened, and why did their disappearance remain shrouded in mystery for so long? A mesmerizing debut for fans of Mitchell Zuckoff’s Frozen in Time (2013).
