Dan Bittner's exciting narration will have listeners on the edge of their seats with this dramatic true story of 25-year-old John F. Kennedy's survival after the destruction of his patrol torpedo (PT) boat during WWII. For six days, Kennedy and his surviving crew lived off coconuts as they desperately sought rescue while stranded on a desert island in Pacific enemy waters near the Solomon Islands. Although listeners miss the pictures in the print version, Bittner's narration adds a cinematic quality to the engaging and well-paced war story. Sidebars in the text add more details for presidential and military history buffs, and are denoted with a nautical bell sound to alert listeners to a break in the narrative.
