Vanished: The Sixty-Six Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II
Bargain Book Copy
In the Fall of 1944, an American bomber carrying eleven men vanished over the Pacific islands of Palau. According to mission reports from the Army Air Forces, the plane crashed in shallow water - but investigators found no trace of wreckage. Witnesses saw the crew parachute to safety, yet the airmen were never seen again. For sixty years, the U.S. government, the children of the missing men, and a maverick rescue team searched the islands for clues. With each one they found, the mystery only deepened.
In a spellbinding narrative of love, loss, sacrifice, and faith, Will S. Hylton weaves together the true story of the missing men; their final mission; the families they left behind; and the scientists, explorers, archaeologists, and deep-sea divers who banded together to solve one of the enduring mysteries of World War 11.
