520    "Savage Will brings to life a remarkable story of 
       perseverance, heroism, and survival: the true tale of the 
       American medics and nurses who endured two months in Nazi-
       occupied Albania, and the fearless citizens and Allied 
       intelligence officers who risked all to save them. On a 
       cold morning in war-ravaged Sicily in 1943, men and women 
       of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Squadron boarded a 
       routine flight to the Italian mainland to care for wounded
       soldiers. En route, their plane became lost in storm 
       clouds looming over the Adriatic Sea, drifted hundreds of 
       miles off course, and crash-landed in remote mountainous 
       Albania. Stranded without proper winter clothing or even 
       weapons, the Americans were trapped 850 blizzard-plagued 
       miles from Allied lines, in a country torn apart by rival 
       bands of pro- and anti-German guerrillas. What followed is
       the most thrilling untold story of World War II -- a saga 
       that would ensnare a cast of hundreds, from President 
       Roosevelt and top Allied intelligence officials to a host 
       of brave Albanian Resistance fighters, the British and 
       U.S. Mediterranean air forces, and the gritty officers 
       sent behind enemy lines to rescue them: a dashing English 
       lieutenant and a tenacious American captain. Hunted by 
       German soldiers, the American castaways were forced to 
       rely on what one survivor called their "savage will" to 
       elude their enemy and ultimately find their way to 
       freedom. Savage Will is a testament to a generation who 
       defied all odds"--|cProvided by publisher.
