This tale ranks in the top 10% of the stories I have listened to over the past 2 years. Three of 24 souls survive the crash of of a C-47 sight-seeing moral-boosting flight in the fastness of Dutch New Guinea. The pilots discovered a high-altitude mountain lush 40-mile valley, inhibited by primitive but friendly (to them) natives. Survivors were stranded for 7 weeks, with nowhere for a plane to land, no trails or roads. How did they get out you ask? You won't believe it, but with Gliders! No kidding...
Unbroken, a WWII story of survival.
The WAC Corporal and the Parachute Battalian Captain
No, just fascinated...
Would make a great movie today... Nicole Kidman could play the corporal
