Über diesen Titel:
THE HARROWING TRUE STORY OF ONE OF THE GREATEST SEA RESCUES IN HISTORY.
In 1995, Hurricane Roxanne ravaged the Gulf of Mexico, with 90 mph winds and waves up to forty feet. Off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Derrick Lay Barge 269 and its tugboats sat exposed, laying an undersea pipeline. Then, out of nowhere, the maelstrom called Roxanne changed course -- and headed straight for them.
This is the true account of survival in the midst of a hell at sea, as hundreds of men fought a heroic battle against the unrelenting elements to save each other's lives against impossible odds. They were not trained, or paid, or even prepared for such a life-and-death struggle. But those ordinary men, trapped in extraordinary circumstances, exemplified the very best humanity could hope to offer. Told for the first time, this is their story -- and a celebration of their courage.
