I read many of Douglas Reeman's novels years ago, and during a chance conversation in a public house recently, this book was recommended to me. I thought that I wouldn't be able to obtain a copy, but I was wrong - Amazon UK solved that for me.
It was a book I found difficult to put down, it took me back to my time whilst in the Royal Navy, although I served twenty years after the story was set, the nautical language was one I was very familiar with, as were the characters - I knew of similar, with less blood shed, as this novel was set in the Second World War, whereas, my particular war was Aden.

A cracking yarn giving a feeling for serving on a warship through difficult times, not sparing the tragedy and bloodshed. The characters are human, with human strengths and weaknesses and well developed, not just caricatures.

I read this book once before years ago and enjoyed it, but had not got the book. Amazon is the only place I found it as I have asked numerous book shops and been told it is out of print. Thank you Amazon, at least I can keep it now.

He keeps them coming does Douglas Reeman. This novel looks at the Australian's part in WW2 as well as the British efforts. He is always good and even recognising the good sides of the German Navy.
