On August 21, 1940, a Nazi raider torpedoed the British merchantman "Anglo-Saxon" and machine-gunned the survivors as they tried to escape in their lifeboats. One boat with seven men managed to get away. Five of them perished, but two endured for 70 days and 2,300 miles to make landfall on the other side of the Atlantic. This is the account of their ordeal.
