This review is from: Lost Voices of The Royal Navy: Vivid Eyewitness Accounts of Life in the Royal Navy from 1914-1945 (Paperback)
The stories in this book are among the most gripping, fascinating and horrifying of any of the armed forces of the world wars. The sections on getting the SS Ohio into Malta are, frankly, astounding and eye-opening in their explanation of the intensity of combat that the Royal Navy faced.
The casualties sustained and the conditions in which the men lived and fought are brought to life by many self-effacing characters, who never considered themselves as heroes. This book and their stories, tell us that they most definitely were.
