WWII and the boys show how mankind needs saving from disasters and having that need of a “savior” to get them

The Finest Hours by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman is the true story of the brave men who risked their own lives to save others. The journey across the sea consisted of many situations that they had to face. Not many people would risk their own lives to save someone else’s.
