Description

THE GRIPPING NAVAL THRILLER, NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING TOM HANKS _______ 1942.

America enters the war and an untested officer receives his first wartime command . . . Ploughing through icy, submarine-infested North Atlantic seas is a convoy of thirty-seven merchant ships, carrying vital Allied supplies. In charge is Commander Krause, a grizzled but unproven veteran of the U.S.

Navy. Over the next forty-eight hours he will stay on watch aboard the bridge of his destroyer as the convoy is hounded by a murderous wolf pack of German U-boats determined to sink every ship without trace. But armed with extraordinary courage and grit, Commander Krause will battle the U-boats, tiredness, self-doubt and self-reproach, as he desperately tries to protect the ships and lives under his command . . . This classic wartime novel is a thrillingly taut tale of bravery and determination against all odds, set during the darkest moments of the Second World War. _______ Praise for C. S. Forester 'Action, tension, tingling suspense . . . The greatest adventure story to come out of World War II' Life Magazine 'I recommend Forester to every literate I know' Ernest Hemingway 'I find Hornblower admirable, vastly entertaining' Sir Winston Churchill
