About Boys In The Cave

Boys In The Cave: Deep Inside the Impossible Rescue in Thailand is the definitive story of the miraculous rescue of the twelve Thai boys who were trapped, alongside their soccer coach, in an underground cave for three weeks. Gutman spent hundreds of hours interviewing rescuers, experts, and the boys themselves. The book breaks new ground on the failed plans and mistakes that nearly doomed the mission, the heroism of the international divers, the U.S. Air Force Special Tactics team and Thai Navy SEALS. It examines the boys’ controversial sedation, the role meditation played, and the innumerable close calls that have never been reported.
