"There are many harrowing accounts of selflessness and courage throughout this book. It was heartwarming to hear the accounts of the sailors jumping into the water to tow exhausted, oil covered prisoners back to the safety of the submarine--of the sailors giving up their bunks and a captiain filling his sub well beyone its capacity. It was difficult, at times, to read of the travesties inflicted upon the prisoners by the Japanese, and to read of their torture and deprivations while imprisoned by the Japanes Empire."
"Something that I will not soon forget."
"…an interesting book and worth reading for its tale of 73 men unlucky enough to be taken prisoner by the Japanese, but lucky enough to survive the ordeal and be rescued by an American submarine."
