520    "On May 19, 1942, a U-boat in the Gulf of Mexico stalked 
       its prey fifty miles from New Orleans. Captained by twenty
       nine-year-old Iron Cross and King's Cross recipient Erich 
       Wurdemann, the submarine set its sights on the freighter 
       Heredia with sixty-two souls on board. Most aboard were 
       merchant seamen, but there were also a handful of 
       civilians, including the Downs family: Ray and Ina, and 
       their two children, eight-year-old Sonny and eleven-year-
       old Lucille. Fast asleep in their berths, the Downs family
       had no idea that two torpedoes were heading their way. 
       When the ship exploded, chaos ensued--and each family 
       member had to find their own path to survival." --
