Summary

There will be days when you wonder at and question some of the risks you had to take, the sacrifices you were forced to offer in the face of death.

In Kiel Harbour, 1945, the war in Europe is at an end. But for Lieutenant Vere Marriott and the men of MGB 801, moored amid a nightmare of devastation, it is an uneasy, unsettled peace. New assignments ashore and afloat mean fresh tensions and conflicting emotions.

For some, glory now takes second place to profit. For others, revenge at last seems within their grasp. No one is shooting at Marriott now. But dangers come thick and fast - from confrontation with the Russians to his feelings for Fraulein Geghim. There is more to victory than survival....

End of the war.

Not much of a story. Little chance of action as the war ends. Excellent performance.

Great end of WW2 novel

Another great book by Reeman. Not action orientated some other of his books but very personal.
