Frank Delaney (1942 – 2017) was an Irish novelist, journalist and broadcaster. He was the author of The New York Times best-seller Ireland, the non-fiction book SIMPLE COURAGE: A True Story of Peril on the Sea, and many other works.
This is the harrowing and true story of the dangerous events surrounding the ocean storm and peril that struck the S.S. Flying Enterprise causing it to break-up; the dangers posed by the Force 12 tempest as it affected rescue efforts; and her brave captain who resolutely struggled to save his passengers and ship.
