Description
On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over 'Shangri-La,' a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton's best selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals.
