An excellent book
on 29 September 2011
Having read dozens of maritime history books this is the first covering the experiences of the seaman and ships of the merchant navy. Bernard Edwards writes with a clear emotional connection to the sea, the ships and the men that sailed them, bringing the reader much closer to the daily lives of merchant men at war. I contrast this to other books which are often matter of fact, distant and elitist e.g. Dog boats at war, yet seem to get good reviews. This book is a genuine good read written by someone with a passion for his subject.
