CAMP CENTURY: City Under The Ice

Email this review


Hidden inside a Greenland glacier and under 20 feet of snow lies a whole miniature American town whose tunnels contain living quarters, shops, research centers, and recreational facilities for 100 scientists and soldiers. This book, written by the first journalist to visit Camp Century, tells the story of how and why it was built and what life is like in it today. The story of the men who live there completely invisible and completely cut off from the rest of the world is a fantastic one. The author neither exaggerates nor leaves anything to the imagination. First rate.
