about

On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Four days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission 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 vanished.

In this thrilling adventure, Mitchell Zuckoff offers a spellbinding account of these harrowing crashes 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 until an expedition attempts to bring them to safety. But that is only part of the story. In present-day Greenland, Zuckoff joins the Coast Guard and North South Polar Inc. on a dangerous expedition to recover the remains of the lost plane's crew.

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.

Editorial Reviews

"The events Mr. Zuckoff relates are terrifying, horrible, remarkable and, sometimes, thrilling. . He is a skilled writer, reporter and researcher, but what gives his latest book its power is his poignant, persuasive depiction of men under arms." - Howard Schneider, Wall Street Journal"This is not a genre known for literary style, but Zuckoff's clear-eyed prose does just what it needs to do.. He even manages to add a contemporary story.and stitch it into the historical narrative so deftly that one feeds the other." - Washington Post"Frozen in Time makes WWII history seem fresh.. [I]t's non-fiction that reads like a page-turner of a mystery. It's filled with heroism, tragedy and remarkable persistence, in the past and present. It's a descriptive slice of World War II.. Zuckoff is a good writer and rigorous researcher. In a dramatic story that easily could be hyped, he writes that 'no liberties were taken with facts, dialogue, characters, or chronology'." - Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today, 3.5/4 stars
