Lost at Sea
by John Wukovits
- Soldier's Stories, World War II
Surviving in deadly waters
In the darkest days of WWII, an unlikely civilian was sent to deliver a letter from Washington to General MacArthur in New Guinea. Eddie Rickenbacker was an icon and the greatest fighter pilot of the First World War. Now in his fifties, Rickenbacker was again serving his nation, riding high above the Pacific as a passenger aboard a B-17.
But soon the plane was forced to crash-land on the ocean surface, leaving its eight occupants adrift in tiny rubber life rafts. The men faced days of unrelenting sun, followed by nights shivering in the cold, all the while circled by sharks.
Using survivors’ accounts and contemporary records, author John Wukovits brings to life a gripping story of survival, leadership, and faith in a time of crisis.
