- By: William Brinkley

The unimaginable has happened: the world has been plunged into all-out nuclear war. Sailing near the Arctic Circle, the USS Nathan James is relatively unscathed, but the future is grim and Captain Thomas is facing mutiny from the tattered remnants of his crew. With civilization in ruins, he urges those that remain - 152 men and 26 women - to pull together in search of land. Once they reach safety, however, the men and women on board realize that they are the earth's last remaining survivors.

What an excellent book on leadership, seamanship, human spirit, strength and perseverance as well as a damn good yarn. I found it hard to believe the author of such a wonderful book that demonstrates the worse but also the best in us all ended his life by suicide.
