Set against the majestic yet unforgiving Himalayan landscape of World War II Tibet--an unknown and tightly sealed land deeply suspicious of foreigners--Lost in Tibet recounts the taut adventure of five American airmen facing the greatest challenge of their young lives. Hundreds of miles off course and running low on fuel, the airmen bail out of their foundering plane over what they thought was India. Instead, they parachute into the high Himalayan ridges of a Tibet riven with political intrigue and pressed tightly between Westerners involved in a war they didn't understand and Chinese who threatened their very existence. Surviving the parachute drop from the plane was only the airmen's first challenge, and perhaps their easiest. Impeccably researched and well paced, Lost in Tibet tells the previously untold story of the group's struggle to escape back to the relative safety of their base in India.
