Within a short time of starting this book I felt that the life of anyone who ever met this particular author could only have been enriched by the experience - if only because everything seems to have happened to this man.

Having joined the Royal Navy in 1934, he was torpedoed on HMS Nelson, joined HMS Prince of Wales before she was commissioned - and was still serving on that great ship when she was lost to Japanese air attack 3 days after Pearl Harbour, was rescued and returned to Singapore just in time for the Japanese invasion and became one of the very few to successfully escape from his Japanese captors by completing an epic sea voyage by small craft all the way to Ceylon - during which time he was shipwrecked again! After service on board HMS Bermuda - which included supporting the Allied landings in North Africa in addition to dreaded Arctic convoys, it was back to the far East for service on two Aircraft Carriers for duty as Flight Deck Officer and then Crash Officer. This man simply survived it all, including 2 Kamikaze attacks and a water spout I almost forgot to mention.

And this is his story. It is an incredible story and one which will not disappoint the reader.

I bought this to do some research on one of my uncles who gets a few mentions in the book. Actually found it a fascinating and exciting story from start to finish. Well written and quite a page turner. I had to read it with a map of the area next to me to follow the action. Its one of those stories of WW2 that never made it to film but probably should have.
