Two American Merchant Mariners, Frederick Larsen and Francis Dales, whose own freighters had sunk in towering flames along with eight others, boarded the Ohio. They repaired the guns and fought the Axis dive-bombers for two days as the sinking tanker was towed by destroyers. Malta was saved, Rommel was turned back, and the Allies started to turn the tide of war.
At All Costs is a gripping story reported in grand historic fashion. It is a tale of unimaginable personal courage and indomitable determination.

A spellbinding story
If you are a fan of WWII books this one provides insight into a liitle known but crucial part of the history of one of the key events that made D-Day possible. An inspring story of the relentless bravery of men at war.

Malta annd WWII
From the description I thought it was a story of two American heroes and it seemed to start out that way but it was actually a story of how important Malta was during WWII. I have read a lot of WWII history but for some reason I never noticed the importance of Malta. Now I notice many references to Malta as I read other histories. The book intermingled common seamen and large historical figures and events. It also impressed on how the people of Malta withstood more bombs than fell on London during the same period of time. This was really an eye opener for me and very enjoyable.
