"The untold story of Leon Crane" and this book sure does not fix that. I think around 3 pages could have told the same story. the rest is just fluff and an irrelevant sidetrack in Avionics history.
very enjoyable. Great research and an exciting story. Had me on the edge of my seat quite a bit. On an astonishing time in world history all of this was. I followed the war very closely and never even thought about what was going on in Alaska and test pilots and winter survival etc. Loved it
Very good writing and story. Lots of historic info learned. Much more than just a survival story.
Gripping story, however I felt half the book was about Leon's survival and the other half filler. Nevertheless a good book
This is an excellent account of that piece of the war effort.
Loved both the historical war time memoir and wilderness adventure combined for a great read. That the author was from my home town in Philadelphia was a surprise and made it more personal as he spoke about places I know. I would recommend.
really well written and interesting
Story of LT. Crane were part of the story the opening of Alaska by bush pilots, the Army Air Corps learning about flight in extreme cold conditions and what happened to the rest of the crew. Not a great or in depth story but worth the time invested. In the end Crane was very lucky.
The story was good, a little too much on the history lesson of World War Two.
Well-paced true adventure story with a good mix of history and fun facts
Great read, excellent narration. The visual descriptions were excellent!
