Cate Lineberry “The Secret Rescue”
June 12th, 2013
When 26 U.S. Army nurses and medics boarded a cargo plane for transport in November 1943, they never anticipated a crash landing in Nazi-occupied Albania that would lead to their months-long struggle for survival.
They were part of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron, and their untold story now unfolds in Cate Lineberry‘s book “The Secret Rescue.”
It was a drama that captured the attention of the American public. The group and its flight crew dodged bullets and battled blinding winter storms as they climbed mountains and fought to survive, aided by courageous villagers who risked death at Nazi hands to help them.
But because of security concerns, the story of these 26 men and women has been left largely untold. Until now.
