3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read, 12 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heart of Oak (Panther Books) (Paperback)
This book came to my attention after researching the HMS Comorin. My Uncle died onboard the ship when it caught fire in April 1941. There were recollections from Tristan Jones on the internet about the incident so I therefore got the book where the stories originated.

However I think his recollections stray from the real events, the Comorin is called the Cameroon in the book and you are left wondering if his stories are fact or fiction! They may be based on his adventures but how far from the truth are they?

That besides, its a great read and gives you a valuable insight into the conditions the seamen were subjected to.

I always thought my Uncle died in the fire onboard but it may well be that he was one of many drowned trying to reach the HMS Hood.
