Savage Will brings to life a remarkable story of perseverance, heroism, and survival. It is the true tale of the American medics and nurses who endured two months in Nazi-occupied Albania and the fearless citizens and Allied intelligence officers who risked all to save them.
On a cold morning in war-ravaged Sicily in 1943, men and women of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Squadron boarded a routine flight to the Italian mainland to care for wounded soldiers. En route, their plane became lost in storm clouds looming over the Adriatic Sea, drifted hundreds of miles off course, and crash-landed in remote mountainous Albania.
