When 26 Army nurses and medics-part of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron-boarded a cargo plane for transport in November 1943, they never anticipated the crash landing in Nazi-occupied Albania that would lead to their months-long struggle for survival behind enemy lines. Author Cate Lineberry tells the tale of the courage and heroism of ordinary people in her book, The Secret Rescue. This is not just a new story of struggle and endurance, but also one of the daring rescue attempts by clandestine American and British organizations amid the tumultuous landscape of the war. A book signing follows the program.
