Encounter at Sea and a Heroic Lifeboat Journey

The gripping World War II story of the torpedoing of the Japanese light cruiser Natori by the American submarine Hardhead, told from a unique and ironical point of view. Enemies to the death a half century ago, two naval officers from each of the fated ships came together to coauthor this compelling human drama of their battle, and of the heroic 300-mile lifeboat ordeal of the survivors. With sensitivity, humility and pride, the authors share their bitter experiences with honesty and respect. They acknowledge each other's professionalism, and the patriotic duty that bound them to countries locked in mortal combat with each other. Every chapter contains examples of superb leadership, and gives the reader rare insights into the minds of the combatants on both sides. This powerful work brings the global realities of a brutal war down to the scale of the men who fought it, and each other--and who ultimately became respectful friends.
