About the Book
Used book. Hardcover. Dust jacket included. Good condition.
Liberty ship Samroxi is battling her way back to Britain across the storm-swept North Atlantic, part of one of the vital convoys on which Britain’s survival depends and in constant peril of attack from U-boats. Her first mate Philip Savage, a man of the sea through and through, is waiting anxiously to reach his home port of Hull, for there his wife Janet will be waiting if all is well.
George Gibson has written a masterly evocation of the war at sea from the days of the North Atlantic convoys through to the climax of D-Day, depicting the valiant role of the merchant ships and the strains of constant warfare on the individual man.
