5 Star Amazon Review (UK Site) 'Trevob.'
Deserves to be in my top ten reads. A fantastic insight into the hell our sailors went through.
3 Star Amazon Review. (Canadian Site) Bruce Best.
A short book about seamen in WW2. I liked the story about his father. It gives details of which ships were involved.
4 Star Amazon Review. (USA Site) Jeff Thomas.
Good account of the dangers faced by those who sailed around the Arctic Circle. The sacrifices these men and ships made don't receive the attention they deserve.
World War Two: Arctic Convoy - Battle of North Cape: All Navy & Aviation ebooks with Maps, Photographs and Famous Leaders.
During WW2 the arctic convoys endured treacherous weather and heavy bombardment from the Luftwaffe and U-boats, as they sailed perilously close to Nazi occupied Norway. Many ships and young seamen were lost at sea, as the convoys brought vital aid to the Russian ports of Archangel and Murmansk. However, the advent of new technology such as; ASDIC, an earlier form of sonar; the Enigma Machine and anti-submarine weapons, helped the arctic convoys fight back, during the four arduous years of their campaign.
The Russian convoys were escorted by the British navy, American navy and the Canadian navy. My late father, John Richards, then 20, served on the 'Fort Astoria,' which was part of the JW.55A/JW.55B convoys, which led to the Battle of North Cape. This famous naval battle climaxed with the sinking of the German battle cruiser, 'The Scharnhorst,' and the loss of nearly 2,000 German sailors.
