Publisher's Summary

Western Ocean, 1942... From the bridge of HMS Gladiator, Lieutenant-Commander David Howard’s orders were chillingly clear. There could be no mercy. To the men who fought to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, the Battle of the Atlantic was a full-scale war. A relentless, savage war against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea - in an arena known only to its embittered survivors as the killing ground. HMS Gladiator was part of that war.
An ordinary, hard-worked destroyer and her company of men. Fighting for survival in a war with no rules.

Very finely rendered

Any additional comments?

David Rintoul's narration is finely matched to this material. So very often this is not the case and I can't decide if it was his perfectly pitched reading or the book itself that held me so tightly to the story.

Beautiful book, but not unabridged!

Any additional comments?

This book is amazing, and i have loved reading it ever since i was a child. However this version does not include the amazing prologue that hooks the reader before the main story even begins.
Please add the prologue to this, otherwise do not claim it as unabridged.
This book is still an amazing read however and i recommend it for all, history buffs or not.

- Reader From Aus "A tad action, mix in some history, throw in some battle & a sprinkle of mystery. A dash narration with added heart & a novel can become art"
