Book Description:

In early 1942, the Cunard luxury liner Laconia had been converted into a troopship. On September, 12 1942, she was hit by two torpedoes fired by the German U-boat, U-156. Laconia's captain ordered the vessel abandoned and, within an hour, she sunk by the head. Adrift far off the coast of West Africa, there was little possibility of rescue by friendly ships for those in her lifeboats or in the water.
