January 1943. Of all her class, HMS Reliant and one other have survived. Reliant has the reputation of a lucky ship but when Captain Guy Sherbrooke joins her he knows he could be her last captain. As Britain prepares to invade occupied Europe, Reliant will be thrown head fist into the conflagration. All those who sail in her know that there can be no half measures: only death or glory awaits HMS Reliant.
