The Dirty Dozen meets Band of Brothers in this true story of how a rusty old New Orleans banana boat staffed with an unlikely crew of international merchant seamen, a gang of inmates from a local jail, and a French harbor pilot spirited out of Morocco by OSS agents in the trunk of a Chevy, were drafted into service in WWIIand heroically succeeded in setting the stage for Pattons epic invasion of North Africa. While portraying the ships journey day by day and describing its colorful crew, Twelve Desperate Miles chronicles the overall November 1942 invasion of Axis forces and its aftermath, as well as the critical but unsung role played by the Contessa.
