Trapped Behind Nazi Lines

This is a fascinating story of an incident during World War II. A group of  men and women, Army Air Force medical workers whose work was to care for wounded soldiers, were on a mission when their plane crashed in Albania.

For 6 months they evaded the German troops, climbed mountains, trudged through waist deep snow, and stayed with partisan families in a lot of small towns. They suffered cold and hunger and fear but did finally get to the coast and on a boat going to Italy. Some great photos and illustrations add to the interesting parts of the book. I strongly recommend it.
