Excellent book - insights into 1950-60s military Arctic ops

An intersting account highlighting US military and Soviet Arctic studies, with interludes briefly covering CIA propietary airlines and the development of the Fulton/Skyhook retrieval system. Points out why both countries considered the Arctic important for study for military purposes during the height of the Cold War. Well written, with firsthand accounts from the people involved in a dramatic plan to parachute personnel near a just-evacuated Soviet ice station to reveal its secrets, then recover them with the first operational use of the Fulton recovery system, also known as Skyhook. (Seen in movies such as Thunderball and The Green Berets.)Highly recommended for anyone interested in Arctic studies or covert operations during the Cold War.
