Pacific Ordeal – Kenneth Ainslie

1 in stock



Ten thousand miles of danger

Four minesweepers have to be towed 10,000 miles. There is one tug to haul from Panama to Manila. This is the true story of that epic voyage. Captain Ainslie’s account of one of the longest and most hazardous feats of maritime history tells of tow-line breaks during gales, a threatened mutiny, engine breakdowns, food shortage, an amputation with a hacksaw and every crewman totally disabled through food poisoning. Pacific Ordeal is one of the most exciting true adventures stories of men against the sea.
