Summary

They were the men and women of the Royal Navy's Special Operations units. Carrying out lightning raids on hostile coasts, they became a navy within a navy - each handpicked for their individual skills, and all of them courageous. Against the mighty backdrop of World War II they performed their small but deadly operations - living often beyond hope, sometimes beyond mercy. This is the dramatic story of a handful of such people. The Volunteers.

Interesting

Narrator excellent but the story and characters didn't hook me in as much as I'd hoped.

Reeman at his best

A fast moving story of small ships and the men who worked them. Life, death, passion and the grasping of happiness in a world gone mad. Well written and read you feel part of it.

Okay But Not Reeman’s best

I’m a Reeman fan for over 40 years and I sill am. However, his full potential was not reached in this novel.
