In peace or war the drama produces some of the greatest moments of human courage. Commander Campbell brings ten of them to life - some of them stories of almost legendary fair excitement: the Cossack's capture of the Altmark, the sinking of the Graf Spee, and Captain Carlsen's brave fight to save the Flying Enterprise. Some of them are less well known but no less great: the fire in the Sarah Sands which first establishedthe tradition of 'Women and children first', and the sinking of the Otrant o and the gallant attempt by the destroyer Mounsey to save the lives of those on board.`- from the dj.

"In 2004, Canadian Tomas Evensen perished in the North Atlantic in thearms of his nephew after a failed attempt to sail to Norway. It was a trag ic death and one that left many unanswered questions: Why wasn't he wearingthe survival suit that could have saved his life? And why would an inexper ienced sailor undertake such a dangerous voyage? In this deeply compelling story, journalist John Chipman retraces Thomas's voyage from its beginnings- his boyhood dream of learning to sail with his father and his midlife de cision to fulfill that dream with his own son; culminating in the purchase of a sailboat ill-equipped for the journey. And then there is the voyage itself, a heart-stopping and ultimately doomed endeavour. Skillfully interweaving conversations with those whose lives were touched by Thomas, as well as his nephew's first-hand account of the boat's final days, John Chipman tells a story that is both harrowing and heart-breaking." -from the dj.
