Publisher's Summary

They were the men and women of the Royal Navy's Special Operations units. Carrying out lightning raids on hostile coasts, they became a navy within a navy - each handpicked for their individual skills, and all of them courageous. Against the mighty backdrop of World War II they performed their small but deadly operations - living often beyond hope, sometimes beyond mercy. This is the dramatic story of a handful of such people. The Volunteers.

Okay But Not Reeman’s best

I’m a Reeman fan for over 40 years and I sill am. However, his full potential was not reached in this novel.

Interesting

Narrator excellent but the story and characters didn't hook me in as much as I'd hoped.

Reeman at his best

A fast moving story of small ships and the men who worked them. Life, death, passion and the grasping of happiness in a world gone mad. Well written and read you feel part of it.
