As a terror-ridden captive in an enemy submarine during World War I, Bowen Tyler’s exciting adventure really begins when he is deposited on the rocky shore of a monster-ridden lost world where time had stopped!
A journal is recovered from a thermos found on the coast of Greenland. The journal was written by Bowen J. Tyler, an American passenger on a ship sunk in the English Channel in 1916 by a German U-boat – the U-33. Bowen and a female survivor, Lys La Rue, had been rescued by a British tugboat which was also sunk. Its crew managed to capture the German submarine when it surfaced. Unfortunately, the remaining British ships continued to regard the U-boat as an enemy, and they are unable to bring it to port. Then, sabotage to their navigation equipment sends the U-33 astray in the South Atlantic.
Circumstances force the British and Germans to work together for survival. With its provisions poisoned by the saboteur, the U-33 is low on fuel when they spot a large island ringed by cliffs. Finding a fresh water subterranean passage, they follow it in the hope of replenishing their water supply. The U-boat surfaces in a tropical river teeming with primitive extinct creatures. Attacked, the U-33 re-submerges and travels further inland in search of safe harbor. Surfacing in a lake, they go ashore and are attacked by a horde of primitive beast-men. They are able to take a prisoner, Ahm – a Neanderthal, from whom they learn the native name for the island is Caspak.

Bowen’s journal states, “I have experienced a cosmic cycle, with all its changes and evolutions for that which I have seen with my own eyes in this brief interval of time-things that no other mortal eye had seen before, glimpses of a world past, a world dead, a world so long dead that even in the lowest Cambrian stratum no trace of it remains.”
While on an exploration mission searching for food and water, Lys disappears. Bowen leaves the other survivors to find and rescue Lys, his new love interest. Reunited, they discover that the Germans have taken over the sub and departed, leaving them stranded in THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT.
