Detailed Product Description
UK, Benediction Classics Oxford City Press, 2010. 161 pp. New Hardcover with pictorial cover. No dust jacket was issued.

Hilton's classic novel of the fictional Tibetan utopia Shangri-La, famously brought to the silver screen by Frank Capra in 1937.

In April 1942 when America first struck back at Japan with Army bombers launched from Navy ships, the whole world wondered how and from where did we ever launch airplanes that could reach Japan. President Roosevelt forever put Hilton's book in everyone's awareness when he told reporters that the planes took off from "Shangri-La." The response raised American morale so much that eight months after the Doolittle raid the Navy commissioned an aircraft carrier and named it Shangri-La.
