That's just the beginning of the story. The real struggle here is the nearly five months the crash survivors spent stranded on the ice, battling blizzards and sub-zero temperatures. Adding to the narrative, there's also a connection to the present woven into the harrowing WWII tale. Nearly 70 years after the crash, Zuckoff, members of the U.S. Coast Guard and a group of polar explorers go back to Greenland looking for one of the original crash sites and a plane still believed to be buried under the ice. In both time periods, this is a truly suspenseful and thrilling American story of perseverance with a worthwhile payoff in the final pages.
