Publisher's Summary

In 1941, when she was turned into an armed merchant cruiser, the SS Benbecula was already old. Yet even she was needed to protect the vital Atlantic sea lanes. Commander Lindsay, her new captain, had to work desperately to mould the ship’s company - raw recruits and old-timers - into a fighting force. And better than anyone, Lindsay knew this could be his last command, his last chance.

A stressful, frenetic reading!

I could not get beyond the first chapter. The reader over-acted, rushing from one sentence to another, frentetic, hardly giving the listener a chance to breath. This may well have resulted in an unfair assesment of the book but I will never know; one can only take so much auditory punishment....
