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....

One of the best!

I love Reeman's books and style so I have to admit I am bias, but this book is one of the most riveting WWII naval novels out there. It will fill you with everything from horror to joy and especially pride in the RN while you are along for the ride.

A good yarn

I like Douglas Freeman novels I have in fact read a lot of the books many years ago. I thought I would listen to them this time . David Rintoul narration is excellent and really makes the novel come alive . It's a good story following Douglas Freeman usual formula with a love interest thrown in. good action and A some tense moments make this a good novel of men at war in the vastness of the world's oceans. if you like naval fiction this is a novel for you.
