Frozen in Time

Frozen in Time by Mitchell Zuckoff Book Summary


A gripping true story of survival, bravery, and honor in the vast Arctic wilderness during World War II, from Mitchell Zuckoff, the author of New York Times bestseller Lost in Shangri-La

On November 5, 1942, a US cargo plane slammed into the Greenland Ice Cap. Four days later, the B-17 assigned to the search-and-rescue mission became lost in a blinding storm and also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on board survived, and the US military launched a daring rescue operation. But after picking up one man, the Grumman Duck amphibious plane flew into a severe storm and vanished.

Frozen in Time tells the story of these crashes and the fate of the survivors, bringing vividly to life their battle to endure 148 days of the brutal Arctic winter, until an expedition headed by famed Arctic explorer Bernt Balchen brought them to safety. Mitchell Zuckoff takes the reader deep into the most hostile environment on earth, through hurricane-force winds, vicious blizzards, and subzero temperatures.

Moving forward to today, he recounts the efforts of the Coast Guard and North South Polar Inc.—led by indefatigable dreamer Lou Sapienza—who worked for years to solve the mystery of the Duck’s last flight and recover the remains of its crew.

A breathtaking blend of mystery and adventure Mitchell Zuckoff's Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II is also a poignant reminder of the sacrifices of our military personnel and a tribute to the everyday heroism of the US Coast Guard.

Excellently written book, particularly the way it goes back and forth in time. This book would make an excellent movie.

- Steadfast in Duty5 star

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.
