Publisher's Summary

From the author of The First to Land, a novel set during World War II. They called them the Scrapyard Flotilla. After a quarter of a century of service, the eight destroyers had seen all kinds of action.

Now they were to be used in raids to open the way for the invasion of Occupied Europe.
