TWO SURVIVED by Guy Pearce Jones

Email this review


Here is a modern Men Against the Sea, the first hand story of the two English youths who survived alone out of the seven men in the one boat that escaped when a Nazi raider torpedoed a British merchantman last August. In a frail jolly boat, man after man died, -- after suffering hunger and thirst, gangrene, insanity, suicide. Three thousand miles in seventy fearful days, before the boat was washed up on one of the Bahamas. Jones was on the spot in Nassau to get their story, and has told it thrillingly, sparing his readers nothing of the horror, but conveying too something of the courage and gallantry.
