-- From the back cover
A classic of naval warfare, this is a Royal Navy destroyer Captain’s personal account of his experiences in the Second World War in the battle against the German U-boats as they attacked the Allied convoys in the harsh conditions of the North Atlantic.
In four unrelenting years Captain Macintyre fought a dozen convoys through the ‘wolf packs’, captured Germany’s greatest U-boat commander and killed another famous ace in one single savage night, and survived the war as the Royal Navy’s ace U-boat Killer credited with seven U-boats destroyed.
This is a unique account of the Battle of the Atlantic, which vividly captures the terror of the U-boat campaign and its eventual defeat through the extraordinary experiences of one remarkable man and commander.
