Product Description

Publishers Note :A dramatic rescue-at-sea account traces the 1952 coast guard attempt to save the crews of two oil tankers caught in a violent nor'easter off the coast of Cape Cod, a mission recounted by first-hand survivors that describes the heroic undertakings of the teams aboard small crafts that came to their aid.Muze Annotation :Mike Tougias and Casey Sherman recount a dramatic 1952 rescue at sea following a brutal storm in which two steel oil tankers were ripped apart. The brave and timely response by the United States Coast Guard was the only hope for the crew, who hung to the remaining parts of the hull. Using small wooden lifeboats, the responders were on a veritable suicide mission. Some were rescued--yet others perished, tanker crew and guardsmen both. Sherman and Tougias interviewed many of the survivors and did extensive research.
