Great Book and story of a Canadian Forces rescue of survivors of a Canadian Forces Hercules transport aircraft crash in the high north. I find that not many people either know or remember this event in October 1991. Reading this book made me very proud of what our people in the Canadian forces can do to save lives in spite of the limited resources we give them to work with. It is a story all Canadians should know!

This is one of the most gripping page turners I've ever read. True story of the incredible survival of the crew and passengers aboard a plane which crashed in the dark, in winter at a remote location on Ellesmere Island in the arctic and the amazing efforts to save them.
The word 'heroic' can be overused but there are so many truly heroic stories here it is almost overwhelming.
Hard book to put down.

Way Better Than Previous Rating! June 4 2013
By sardog10 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although I'm not the greatest at writing reviews, I needed to write this when I saw the previous one-star rating given to this wonderful book. I first started it because my father was in Alert around the time of the crash but the book quickly grabbed me and I've now read it twice in the last couple of years. A gripping true story of an Arctic plane crash, survival and the extraordinary efforts that their fellow service members made to rescue them. Well worth the read!

I Can't Put This Book Down! April 20 2012
By Frasier Nutzov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been reading "Death & Deliverance: Haunting True Story of the Hercules Crash at the North Pole" by Robert Mason Lee.

From the instant I picked up this book, I couldn't put it down.

Literally, I am physically unable to release it from my grasp!

I am posting this comment through the use of voice recognition software, because my hands are permanently affixed.

Without an image of this book in the advertisement, I assumed it was like a normal book - not covered with razor-sharp hollow hooks that inject surgical adhesive under my skin, and cruel barbs that pierce my palms and leave me in searing agony.

I can't dial the phone or put the key in my ignition, and I am dozens of miles from help.

It is as if I am trapped in a wrecked Hercules airplane at the North Pole.

Great story so far, by the way...
