Book Description

16 Jun 2011
In April 1943 Lady Be Good, an American Liberator bomber, vanished into the night while returning to base at Benghazi, Libya, following a mission to Naples, Italy. All attempts to find the aircraft and her crew proved unsuccessful, and they became just one more casualty of the war. Fifteen years later, oil geologists spotted the bomber's remarkably well-preserved remains from the air some 400 miles southeast of Benghazi. Reports to American and British authorities provoked no interest. The investigation and reconstruction of the ill-fated mission was left to geologist Don Sheridan, who led a survey party to the plane and eventually located the crew and evidence of their desperate attempt to survive in the forbidding desert environment. Fascinated by rumors of the tragedy, Mario Martinez spent years attempting to find out exactly what happened. His account of the mystery is riveting. An intriguing piece of detective work, the story he has put together tells of the crew's courageous efforts to save themselves. It is a story with broad appeal, as evidenced by the popularity of a television documentary broadcast when this book was first published in 1995.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing true story that led to a cult film. 17 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Back in the 1970s I saw "Sole Survivor" a film that I have never forgotten. Upon researching it recently I came across the true story that inspired the film. I just had to find out more and this resulted in me buying this book. It is very easy reading. It is constructed in a methodical way enabling the reader to learn a lot about the bombing operations in WW2 in the Mediterranean region. This gives one a better understanding of how the mystery began and unfolded over the decades that followed. Haven't been able to put it down which is handy as I have broken my ankle!!
