Summary
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 in a country torn apart by rival bands of pro- and anti-German guerrillas
