A new book by Mitchell Zuckoff called "Frozen In Time: An Epic Story Of Survival And A Modern Quest For Lost Heroes Of World War II" will be released on April 23rd. I was able to get an advanced reader's copy of this book and I was very pleased to do so. It is a riveting read. The author is a professor of journalism at Boston University and is the winner of the Winship/PEN New England Award. A very prestigious award, I am sure but I can only tell you that this is a very well written book and one that I can certainly recommend to you.
"Other military branches were America's swords and spears; the Coast Guard was its shield". That is one of the sentences that I jotted down while I was reading this book. You will have such a respect for those who serve in The United States Coast Guard. I know that I do.
NOTE: I had most of this post written as a rough draft. Tonight, the evening of April 15th, I thought that I would add more detail to it and let you know more about the book. However, all I can think of is the fact that the author lives just outside Boston and about the bombings that occurred today at the Boston Marathon. Please, say a prayer.
