A survival film made during the Cold War, this film attempts to give practical advice to airmen who find themselves stranded in the "desert without sand" -- the arctic tundra. As the U.S. military began seeing the polar regions as a potential battleground with the Soviet Union, more and more flights were made into these regions, and the need for films like this one greatly increased. In this film the crew of a C-119 Flying Boxcar bails out and must survive in trying circumstances.
