Item description for The Boat: Singapore Escape - Cannibalism at Sea by Walter Gibson...

In 1942 a ship carrying 500 escapees from Japanese-occupied Singapore set sail for Ceylon. Halfway to safety she was torpedoed and sank. Only one lifeboat was launched--a lifeboat built to carry twenty-eight but to which 135 souls now looked to for salvation. For twenty-six days, cannibalism, murder, heroism, and self-sacrifice drifted with her. There were only four survivors.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Boat: Singapore Escape - Cannibalism at Sea?

a page out of my history  Mar 9, 2008
I may be a little prejudiced in my attachment to this book: my parents knew Doris Lim in Shanghai before she and they were forced to flee, my father to Hong Kong with B. F. Goodrich, my mother to Manila, where it was considered safer to have her baby--me. There, my mother again came across Doris, among many other refugees, enroute to a safer haven. My mother, very pregnant at the time, shared her hotel bed with Doris (for a few days, I believe) before Doris left. We have a photo of a dinner party seated at a large table, at which also sat my mother and Doris.

When this book first appeared some years ago (1953, I believe), my parents heard about it and immediately bought it--it was the first that they discovered what had happened to their friend Doris after she left Manila. So the events seemed somehow personal to me. However, if you are at all attracted to very human stories of what happens to innocents in wartime, you'll find this book a wonderful read.
