Publisher's Summary

The story of men who rose to heroism, and then to something greater, HMS Ulysses takes its place alongside The Caine Mutiny and The Cruel Sea as one of the classic novels of the navy at war. It is the compelling story of Convoy FR77 to Murmansk - a voyage that pushes men to the limits of human endurance as they are crippled by enemy attack and the bitter cold of the Arctic.


What the Critics Say

"A story of exceptional courage which grips the imagination." (Daily Telegraph)
"It deserves an honourable place among 20th-century war books." (Daily Mail)

What a misery

A misanthropic war tragedy. There's not much light or redemption in this unrelievedly grim tale of an arctic convoy during WW2. Misery upon misery ending in disaster, death and disgrace. I guess a gritty true-to-life account of what it was really like is an appropriate antidote to the boys-own-annual view of the navy and war but pheeww this one is really depressing. The writing is taught and Quilly's cut glass accent is perfect. If you can stand the tragedy its an interesting well crafted work.
