One of the Remarkable True Stories of WWII series. Tales of extraordinary courage and survival.
Among those who fought in the ferocious battles for the skies during World War II, some shot down, or forced to ditch had to confront an exceptionally pitiless enemy: the sea. DOWN IN THE DRINK tells the astonishing stories of nine aircrews who suffered this horrifying plight. These are tales of bravery and resilience, loyalty and friendship.
The accounts of heroism and endurance in DOWN IN THE DRINK match any from that time. They are stories of men from all corners of the British Commonwealth fighting for survival against unimaginable odds. Their experiences give stirring proof that there is no limit to human courage.
