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.
Born in 1914, Walter Gardiner Gibson fought in WWII Malaya, and survived in a lifeboat for twenty-six days amidst cannibalism and treachery. Soldier, POW, and author, he died in 2005.
