The Finest Hours: The True Story Of A Heroic Sea Rescue


Michael J. Tougias & Casey Sherman One dark night, on February 18, 1952, a terrible storm hits the waters of Cape Cod. Waves are dashing up to 70 feet high. A tanker out on the open sea receives devastating damage and splits in the middle. Incredibly, only 20 miles away, a second tanker received similar damage. Now each section is bobbing wildly in the stormy waters. Crewmen are clinging to the rails. Will the coast guard get there in time? This is a book full of action and there are many heroes found in its pages.
