    Very enjoyable read for all those interested in aviation archaeology or wreck hunting. I’m not familiar with any of the crashes mentioned in the book but found the writeups to be well detailed with lots of photos. Of special interest were the crashes where the survivors returned to the site and shared their thoughts on what had happened to them. Will sit very nicely on my shelf with my other ‘wreck’ books.

    Trey Brandt’s storytelling style is both engaging and informative. He uses historical detail to paint a vivid picture of the events that took place on the fateful day of each wreck he has discovered. I’m not a history buff but, I found this book to be quite an enjoyable read.
