The urgent alarm was raised at military rescue centres across North America, as survivors of the crash huddled in the torn stub of tail section for protection from a fierce Arctic storm. The saga of their rescue at the North Pole is at once a gripping tale of adventure, a grim ordeal of suffering, and an inspirational discovery of the redemptive power of the human spirit.

If you read the book must see the movie .Nathan Fillion portrayed my uncle very film - great and brave performance considering it was his first film he ever done. The movie version is called Ordeal in the Artic starring Richard Chamberlain

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.

HASH(0x9d550104) out of 5 stars 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!
