WWII

A novel of stark, unrelenting realism, forged out of the immediate experience of World War II at sea. No phony heroics, no stiff upper lips. It has become a classic in its time.

Vividly describes in fictionalised style the life on the lower deck, from joining the Royal Navy and through to service aboard a destroyer on Murmansk convoy protection duties.
