KIRKUS REVIEW

Another chapter in the annals of disaster, this tells the story of the dirigible Italia, which crashed on an ice pack northeast of Spitzbergen, in 1928, and provided yet another ordeal of endurance in the arctic. The hardships, the dangers, the difficulty of communication, the lack of rescue facilities combined to make the ultimate rescue of the engineer-entrepreneur, Nobile, and his companions in misfortune, one that was a subject of controversy for years. This new appraisal, based on personal interviewing and study of the records, will help vindicate Nobile. A dependable masculine market for adventure.
