Professional reviews

"This book is proof that just when you think that every WWII story has been told, another comes along. Ably read by Mitchell Zuckoff, the book chronicles three military personnel who survived a plane crash near the end of the war, only to find themselves stranded without a method of communicating in a jungle known for cannibals. The story of their rescue is gripping, and Zuckoff's narration is adept. He delivers the story with confidence, conveying the fears of those stranded as well as the efforts of the paratroopers and others who attempt to come to their rescue, only to face additional obstacles.
