Torpedoed by a German U-boat, adrift on the open ocean, gravely weakened and slowly dying of thirst - the odds of making shore are lengthening with each gruelling hour. Deliverance from the decaying lifeboat will take something more remarkable than sheer endurance. And after survival at sea, yet more anguish lies in wait. Based on a true incident in 1942.

"A remarkable imaginative achievement"--Edward Stourton. "Destined to become a true maritime classic "--Angus Konstam. "A brilliantly conceived story of endurance and romance"--Lord Butler. "A powerful and remarkable novel"--Army Children Archive. "Elevated to the realms of the truly memorable"--Simon Appleby, Bookgeeks. WINNER 2011 People's Book Prize
