Great Book.

David Rintoul is a master of the genre and Douglas Reeman can't be bettered. From the Artic Convoys to The Med his story's cover everything from Cruisers to Submarine to Tug Boats. Great escapism and story telling.

Brilliant

Another classic from Reeman. Another reminder of those days when bravery was understated and commonplace.
