Book Description HTML

This Korean War-Era story begins with an Air Force second lieutenant who is assigned to an air base in Greenland as a petroleum officer. He leaves behind a girlfriend who is in a hospital fighting tuberculosis. Her letters filled with optimism and courage, lift his morale and inspire him to persevere against very difficult odds. Harsh weather, shortages of equipment and parts, plus the ire of a lieutenant colonel with whom he must work lead up to a tanker unloading accident. The lieutenant is charged with dereliction of duty, and in the resulting court martial trial, the colonel testifies for the prosecution. The lieutenant attempts to resolve the conflict, and in a final climactic action involving the two protagonists, the lieutenant's love for his hospital-bound girlfriend saves his life.
