Mangerich, Agnes Jensen. Albanian escape : the true story of . Army nurses behind enemy lines, Agnes Jensen Mangerich ; as told to Evelyn M. Lexington, K. University Press of Kentucky, c1999.

On November 8, 1943, U.S. Army nurse Agnes Jensen stepped out of a cold rain in Catania, Sicily, into a C-53 transport plane. But she and twelve other nurses never arrived in Bari, Italy, where they were to transport wounded soldiers to hospitals farther from the front lines. A violent storm and pursuit by German Messerschmitts led to a crash landing in a remote part of Albania, leaving the nurses, their team of medics, and the flight crew stranded in Nazi-occupied territory. What followed was a dangerous nine-week game of hide-and-seek with the enemy, a situation President Roosevelt monitored daily. Albanian partisans aided the stranded Americans in the search for a British Intelligence Mission, and the group began a long and hazardous journey to the Adriatic coast. During the following weeks, they crossed Albania's second highest mountain in a blizzard, were strafed by German planes, managed to flee a town moments before it was bombed, and watched helplessly as an attempt to airlift them out was foiled by Nazi forces. Albanian Escape is the suspense-filled story of the only group of Army flight nurses to have spent any length of time in occupied territory during World War II. The nurses and flight crew endured frigid weather, survived on little food, and literally wore out their shoes trekking across the rugged countryside. Thrust into a perilous situation and determined to survive, these women found courage and strength in each other and in the kindness of Albanians and guerrillas who hid them from the Germans.

Illustrated the compassion and commitment to save lives, simply reminds me of Jesus's shepherd, who leaves all behind and rejoices when the one is found
The courage of the nurses is outstanding. I feel honored to h ave shared this book with other nurses.
We do not
often hear theses stories.
Arihelm
I have read several books related to WWII nursing history. This was one of the most original stories I have come across. Well Written and very much worth the read. Not one of the Vets that I spoke with from this era had ever heard of this story. It was a great bit of little known history.
Haracetys
This was an amazing story of survival, friendship. perserverance, compassion, and patriotism. The Albanian farmers, families, and rebels (against the Nazi invasion) were the heroes of this detailed account of survival behind enemy lines.
Painwind
An engrossing WWII survival story.
Folsa
Having been to Albania 6 times and being familiar with the people and the places mentioned, this was especially interesting. Even without that past experience, it would still be an interesting read.
Jugore
Very interesting true story of survival during WW II. The conditions described in rural Albania and the need to trust strangers in a foreign land led to a great, compelling book.
Thabel
I found this book to be a simplistic and a stilted recount of events that were harrowing and full of emotion. However, the emotion is lost in this droll, objective recitation.
Hard to put down - a great true story.
