From the dust jacket. The loss of the heavy cruiser HMS Edinburgh in the Barents Sea in May 1942 was one of the heaviest single blows in the long, thankless battering taken by the Royal Navy in escorting convoys to North Russia. Less than a fortnight later, another fine cruiser, the brand new HMS Trinidad, went to the bottom of the same icy waters. Among her survivors was the author of this memorable and gripping story. At the time of the Edinburgh's sinking he was at Murmansk aboard the Trinidad, which had been torpedoed on her outward voyage and was in dry dock undergoing repair. Nearby were the camps where the sailors from Allied ships that had been sunk awaited passage home, a voyage that was all to often ended by yet another torpedo. He describes the moment when the Captain of the Edinburgh called the roll of her ship's company, a scene that moved men who had already been through hell and back as they realised from the silences which of their shipmates they would not see again. The sinking of the Edinburgh has been recently highlighted by the bold enterprise of salvaging the gold bullion that she was carrying. But the story Frank Pearce has to tell is of the men who sailed in her to face perhaps the most prolonged, arduous and deadly service to which any surface craft were exposed in the Second World War.
