    Please tell me the meaning

    The following sentences are the part of the story for J.F.Kennedy.
    Would anyone tell me the meaning of the underlined part?
    Thank you.

    John himself was given up for dead when his boat sank as a result of
    enemy action in the Pacific Ocean. He and his men were missing
    for a whole week. The account of thier escape makes an excitig
    story. As their boat sank under them the men decided not to give themselves up to the enemy on an island
    which was near. Instead they went towards another
    island several miles away.
