At twenty-six, fighter pilot Tim Rowan, RNVR, is already a veteran of many campaigns.

About the Author:

Douglas Reeman joined the Navy 1941. He did convoy duty in the Atlantic , the Arctic and the North Sea and later served in motor torpedo boats. As he says, 'I am always asked to account for the perennial appeal of the sea story, and its enduring appeal for people of so many nationalities and cul- tures. It would seem that the eternal and sometimes elusive triangle of man, ship and ocean, particularly under the stress of war, produces the best qualities of courage and compassion, irrespective of the rights and wrongs of the conflict..The sea has no under- standing of righteous or unjust cause. It is the com- mon enemy, respected by all who serve on it, ignored at their peril'. Reeman has written over thirty novels under his own name and more than twenty best selling history- ical novels, featuring Richard Bolitho and his nephew Adam Bolitho, under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.
