Description
On August 21, 1940, a Nazi raider torpedoed the British merchantman Anglo-Saxon and gunned down the survivors as they tried to escape in lifeboats. One little jolly-boat escaped with seven men; five perished, but Robert Tapscott and William Widdcombe endured for 70 days, crossing 2300 miles of open water to land on the other side of the Atlantic. In this book, written shortly after their return, newspaper editor Guy Pearce Jones relates their story of survival in gripping detail.

"An amazing odyssey of valor ... gruesome, tragic, ignoble, heroic."NYTBR

"There's more excitement in this modern adventure ... than most movies are able to dream up. It has everything."Cleveland Press
