A Jurassic nightmare confronts the crew of the U-boat U-33 when it surfaces in a lagoon on the uncharted island of Caprona. Yet, man-eating dinosaurs are the least of their problems. Out of fuel, lost, and with a mixed crew of English captives and German sailors struggling for control of the submarine, the castaways must co-operate or perish on the unforgiving island. Bowen Tyler enters into the uneasy arrangement with good intentions, but the Prussian captain, von Schoenvorts, bides his time, nurturing his jealousies and hatred until it is too late, and catastrophe strikes. The Land That Time Forgot remains a classic ripping yarn and fast-paced adventure story, one of Edgar Rice Burroughs' most enduringly popular tales.
