Another Book Giveaway - The Secret Rescue!
I am thrilled to offer y'all another book giveaway today! The book is The Secret Rescue: an Untold Story of American Nurses and Medics Behind Nazi Lines by Cate Lineberry. This is a new release, a hardback first edition, that I got from the generous folks over at Little, Brown. This is author Cate Lineberry's first book. She is the former staff writer and Europe editor for National Geographic and the web editor for Smithsonian. You can find her on Facebook here and on Twitter here.
In November 1943 twenty-six US Army Air Forces flight nurses and medics boarded a military transport for the front line in Italy to evacuate the sick and injured. A ferocious storm knocked them off course into the path of German fighters and the flight was forced to crash-land into unknown territory behind enemy lines. No compass, no radio, one gun. The Secret Rescue is the story of their survival against terrifying odds.
