U Boat commander Karl-Freidrich Merten then surfaced and berated the Cairo's master for being disorganised. He then told the luckless captain where he was (2,000 miles from Brazil and over 1,000 miles from Africa) and then uttered the incredible words which gave rise to the title of this book before disappearing. What then followed is one of the most amazing tales of human endurance and survival at sea it has ever been my privilege to read.
Author Ralph Barker has, seemingly, addressed every question in this meticulously researched and well presented account which took many years of hard work to produce.
If you are interested in tales of the sea, shipwreck, war and human endurance, this book is a combination of all those factors rolled into a fascinating account of men and women pitched against the elements. Put simply, this is an excellent read.
