The story of men who rose to heroism, and then to something greater, HMS Ulysses is the compelling story of Convoy FR77 to Murmansk - a voyage that pushes men to the limits of human endurance as they are crippled by enemy attack and the bitter cold of the Arctic.

When the newly qualified vet, James Herriot, arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, he has no idea of the new friends he will meet or adventures that lie ahead. From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, this first volume of unforgettable memoirs chronicles James Herriot's first years as a country vet, with the signature storytelling magic that has made him a favourite the world over.

I found this a most entertaining book and enjoyed it right from the start, I watch the series on TV but this did not ruin the reading of this book. I will listen to it a few more times over the coming months.
