Two harrowing crashes . . . A vanished rescue plane . . . A desperate fight for life in a frozen, hostile land . . . The quest to solve a seventy-year-old mystery

The author of the smash New York Times bestseller Lost in Shangri-La delivers a gripping true story of endurance, bravery, ingenuity, and honor set in the vast Arctic wilderness of World War II and today.

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.

In this thrilling adventure, Mitchell Zuckoff offers a spellbinding account of these harrowing disasters and the fate of the survivors and their would-be saviors. Frozen in Time places us at the center of a group of valiant airmen fighting to stay alive through 148 days of a brutal Arctic winter by sheltering from subzero temperatures and vicious blizzards in the tail section of the broken B-17 until an expedition headed by famed Arctic explorer Bernt Balchen attempts to bring them to safety.

But that is only part of the story that unfolds in Frozen in Time. In present-day Greenland, Zuckoff joins the U.S. Coast Guard and North South Polar--a company led by the indefatigable dreamer Lou Sapienza, who worked for years to solve the mystery of the Duck's last flight--on a dangerous expedition to recover the remains of the lost plane's crew.

Drawing on intensive research and Zuckoff 's firsthand account of the dramatic 2012 expedition, Frozen in Time is a breathtaking blend of mystery, adventure, heroism, and survival. It is also a poignant reminder of the sacrifices of our military personnel and their families--and a tribute to the important, perilous, and often-overlooked work of the U.S. Coast Guard.

Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II by Mitchell Zuckoff is a vivid and compelling story of survivial and overcoming the harshest conditions on Earth, The North Arctic Ice. There are actually two stories within this book. The first story is a story of survival within the Arctic wilderness during World War II. This book details the 148 days the surviving crew spent in the Arctic. The book not only describes how the crew physically dealt with the subzero tempertures but also how they coped psychologically with being trapped on the Arctic ice. This part of the book will show you what limits we can endure. The second story within the book is the modern telling of the attempt to locate and recovery of the two planes that crashed in November of 1942. The first plane was a US cargo plane and the second was a B-17 (Duck) assigned to the search-and-rescue for the first aircraft. The author who actually participated in the search for B-17 (Duck) describes the efforts of the Coast Guard and the private company, North South Polar Inc. Who was led Lou Sapienza. This book is definitely worth your time and I would recommend it to others. Thank you for reading my review.
