The novel that launched the astonishing career of one of the 20th century’s greatest writers of action and suspense – an acclaimed classic of heroism and the sea in World War II. Now reissued in a new cover style.
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, crippled by enemy attack and the bitter cold of the Arctic.

‘A brilliant, overwhelming piece of descriptive writing.’
‘A story of exceptional courage which grips the imagination.’
‘It deserves an honourable place among 20th-century war books.’
‘HMS Ulysses is in the same class as The Cruel Sea.’
"Where the 'Ulysses' went, there also went death. But death never touched her. She was a lucky ship and a ghost ship and the Arctic was her home."
Battling through the mountainous icy seas of the Arctic Circle, stalked by German U-boats, her crew exhausted, sick and in disgrace, 'HMS Ulysses' struggles to redeem herself as she escorts convoy FR77 on the harsh and hazardous journey to Murmansk.
Alistair MacLean's gripping story of men working under intolerable pressure in a merciless environment is an unforgettable study of human courage and endurance.
