The author was aboard an aircraft that crashed into flames and left him as the only survivor of a 7-man crew. Equally exceptional is his account of a terrible ordeal in the winter of 1945. With thousands of comrades he struggled on foot over 400 miles across a frozen landscape. Had an unknown woman not helped, the authors chances of survival would have declined to nil.. Soft Cover.
