"When the eight men of Captain Rickenbacker's party pushed off from their sinking plane they found that the excitement of the crash very little had to been saved. The had only four oranges, some fish hooks and Johnny Bartek's New Testament. The oranges were gone by the fifth day, the fish hooks were useless until they were able to provide bait, but they soon began to discover the marvelous sustaining power of the little book which Johnny carried in his pocket. 'Better thank God for your Testament, son, ' said Captain Rickenbacker when they were rescued and they had all echoed that thought in their hearts many times. This book is Johnny Bartek's own story of that ordeal, told in his own words with some help in clarification from Austin Pardue ... This is more than a story of courage in the face of incredible hardship -- it is the story of a young man's discovery of the nearness and reality of God through the medium of the greatest epic of the war so far"--Jacket.
