The year is 1940. The world is at war. Captain David Smith believes his daughter Sarah is one of the prisoners in the hold of Altmark. He is among the men of Cossack who board the prison-ship in Jössingfjord. But his search for Sarah is not over. And as Captain of the ageing cruiser Cassandra, after twenty years 'on the beach' in naval intelligence, he knows his crew think him out of touch, out of date, and doubt his fitness to command.
Following a number of deftly-handled sea battles, however, Smith gradually wins their confidence. But his severest test is yet to come, off the coast of recently-invaded Norway at the Battle of Narvik.
There his final clash with the big cruiser Brandenburg awaits him, when he will have to decide between love for his daughter and loyalty to his country...
