    December 1944, the Pacific Theater. General Douglas MacArthur has vowed to return to the Philippines. He will need the help of Admiral William "Bull" Halsey's Pacific Fleet. But at the height of the invasion, Halsey's ships are blindsided by a typhoon of unprecedented strength and scope. Battleships are tossed like toys, fighter planes are blown off carriers, destroyers are capsized, and hundreds of sailors are swept into the roiling, shark-infested sea.

    M. Taussig says: "Weather and Naval History Masterpiece"
    "Halsey's Typhoon"
    Overall

    This is a great piece of history. The book is well documented and provides readers an unbiased view of the facts as they were. The authors do not try to apply today's sensibilities to the events detailed, but rather points to the issues of the day. The narration is entertaining and easy to listen to. If you are a Naval history enthusiast, this is a must read.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    Janice says: "Facinating history"
    "Yawn! Maybe if the Author was not the narrator..."

    Would you try another book from Mitchell Zuckoff and/or Mitchell Zuckoff?

    Doubtful


    Has Lost in Shangri-La turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The genre is good, but not the book


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Mitchell Zuckoff?

    Never


    Do you think Lost in Shangri-La needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Oh, I hope not!


    Any additional comments?

    Always pay a professional to narrate your work. It's like Doctor operating on themselve. I hate say I quit this book at 3/4 through....it just was too much fluff and not enough story. This story was not lost, just not interesting.
