  • "The Andrea Gail is a sword fishing boat out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Billy Tyne is her captain, down-on-his-luck from a recent losing streak, looking to bring back one big score so he and his crew will have the money to stay ashore during the coming winter. So out they go, and they hit it big, hauling in what the crew estimates is a quarter-million-dollars worth of fish. Unfortunately, they haven't paid attention to the weather forecasts or the radio, and the boat is right in the path of what will become one of the most terrifying and fantastic storms of the century. The always-beating heart of the adventure are the men (and women) who go down to the sea in ships and are oft-times lost at sea, doing battle with the unpredictable, sometimes vicious forces of Nature. Based on a true story, and dedicated to the ten thousand Gloucestermen who have died at sea since 1623."

October 1991. It was "the perfect storm"--A tempest that may happen only once in a century--a nor'easter created by so rare a combination of factors that it could not possibly have been worse. Creating waves ten stories high and winds of 120 miles an hour, the storm whipped the sea to inconceivable levels few people on Earth have ever witnessed. Few, except the six-man crew of the Andrea Gail, a commercial fishing boat tragically headed towards its hellish center."@en

  • "L'histoire d'une tempête, à l'automne 1991, dans l'Atlantique Nord, au large des côtes de Nouvelle-Angleterre et le naufrage de l'Andrea Gail, un bateau de pêche à l'espadon. Ce récit, élaboré à partir des témoignages des survivants et des proches des disparus, ainsi qu'à travers l'analyse des données techniques et des rapports officiels, est aussi un hommage aux hommes qui affrontent la mer."
  • "Im Herbst 1991 tobt vor der kanadischen Küste ein Jahrhundertsturm. Zu dem Schwertfischtrawler Andrea Gail bricht der Funkkontakt ab. Schiff und Mannschaft verschwinden am 29. Oktober spurlos in der aufgepeitschten See. Gestützt auf die Berichte von Seeleuten, die ähnliche Stürme erlebt haben, und auf Gespräche mit Meteorologen, Kollegen und Angehörigen der Verunglückten dokumentiert Sebastian Junger das vergebliche Ringen der sechs Fischer mit den Naturgewalten, aber auch den Alltag der Menschen in Gloucester, dem Heimathafen der Andrea Gail."
