Publisher's Summary

It’s August 1944 and as the Allied forces gain momentum in Europe, a group of loyal German expatriates trapped in Brazil hatch a desperate plan to return to the Motherland. Twenty-seven of them crowd aboard a 19th century, three-mast schooner, the Deutschland, in a desperate journey to return home. They must cross 5,000 miles of rough sea, and slip past both the American and British navies.

A captured U-boat ace, a female American doctor caught up in the nightmare, a veteran gun boat commander, and a rear admiral determined to get back into the action. Allies and enemies, men and women, the hunters and the haunted - all drawn inescapably into the eye of the storm.

Honor

A damn good nautical story about war and the longing for home. And honor on both sides of the conflict
