When the German submarine WIDDER sank the ANGLO-SAXON during WWII, it failed to achieve a 100% mortality rate. But of the seven sailors who climbed onto a jolly boat, only two reached the shores of the Bahamas 70 days later. George Wilson presents this harrowing survival story with a strong voice and convincing German accent. He relates how these sailors dealt with their fate and each other as they fought to survive. The narrative goes beyond their survival and describes how each sailor's life was affected by his experience. Wilson shares this sorrowful tale in an interested and soft voice that allows the listener to feel the gravity of the situation and its aftermath. J.F.M.
