The Secret Rescue : An Untold Story of American Nurses and Medics Behind Nazi Lines Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

When 26 Army Air Force flight nurses and medics boarded a military transport plane in November 1943 on a mission to evacuate wounded and sick troops, they didn't anticipate a crash landing in Nazi territory. Emerging from their battered aircraft, the Americans found themselves in Albania, a country rife with chaos and danger.

With hunger and sickness as their constant companions, they hid at night with courageous villagers who shared what little food they had and risked death at Nazi hands to help them. This mesmerizing account of the courage and bravery of ordinary people reveals for the first time an astonishing true story of heroic struggle and endurance.
