  "As an Ex U.S. Navy man I have always been interested in Naval Customs, Traditions and History. This Book Is about one of the basic human needs.... survival. What lengths would a person go to ensure their own survival in what appears to be a hopeliss situation? This book deals with the age old question of the survival instincts of humans. What is right? What is Wrong? What is Moral or Immoral? they were not the first to face this question. What makes this book unique is the aftermath, the trial of the survivors. Men driven by hunger to do the deplorable having to face and explain at a trial no less, of their actions to others what they could not possibly understand. What would you do is not a fair question unless you have to face these circumstances yourself."
