-- From the dust jacket
The Seamen who in past centuries put down piracy are triumphing over the new piracy – triumphing over the gun of the raider and the stealthy torpedo of the U-Boat; over Hitler’s secret weapon, the magnetic mine, strewn in the fairway of commerce, and the bombing aeroplane swooping out of the skies.
