Résumé

Tales of sixty of the most daring escapes, famous shipwrecks, and ultimate survivals. The statistics, descriptions, archive photographs and illustrative maps will give the reader a full understanding of how Joe Simpson crawled to safety in the South American Andean mountains, how Anthony Farrah-Hockley evaded capture after the Battle of Imjin River in the Korean War and how Shackelton's men survived the incredible journey by boat to South Georgia.

Here is a selection of them: Survival Stories * The Miracle of Stairway B, and how 16 people managed to escape death in the Twin Towers on 9/11. * The infamous story of the Montevideo rugby union team's plane crash in the Andes, and their subsequent admission of cannibalism - 2012 is the 40th anniversary of the crash.
