Stranded in the Six-Day War by Cath Senker

This is the story of the crews of the 14 merchant ships held in the Great Bitter Lake on the Suez Canal, for 8 years.

It is a fascinating book which really demonstrates how quickly seafarers adapt and make the best of whatever situations they are faced with. It was at the time of the Cold War, yet all of the crews regardless of nationality worked together to overcome unbelievable adversity. After a mere four months they established the Great Bitter Lake Association, arranging social and sporting activities between the crews.

For any seafarer this book will ring many bells and swing many lamps, and for those that transited the canal, much like a commuter uses the M25, it will have a special poignancy.
