Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Britain's only hope of survival against Hitler's ever encroaching Nazi forces was to keep open the vital supply lanes across the Atlantic. To do so, a group of retired senior naval officers were called on to take command of the merchant convoys. This book is the first to profile these heroic men and their actions, which helped turn the tide of war.
