In November 1942, the Dunedin Star, a ship of Britain’s Blue Star Line, was bound for the Middle East, her consignment of munitions for the 8th Army supplemented by 21 civilians escaping the Blitz. Three weeks into her voyage, her hull mysteriously holed, the Dunedin Star ran aground off Namibia’s infamous Skeleton Coast the most violent and desolate shore on earth. Sixty-three passengers were to defy unfathomable odds to reach land but their struggle for survival had only just begun.

"Based on interviews with survivors, eyewitness testimony and personal journals, Dawson skilfully reconstructs the doomed voyage, the terror of the wilderness and the painstaking rescue missions." BELFAST TELEGRAPH "Dawson draws from the written testimony of those involved and speaks to the only two survivors still alive to deliver a lively, pacy read." GOOD BOOK GUIDE
