The year: 1943. Now there was to be no more retrat for Britain and her Allies. At last the war was to be carried into enemy territory. And, from captured bases and makeshift harbours in North Africa, the Royal Navy's Special Force was to be the probe and spearhead of the advance. To this unorthodox warfare came the corvette 'H.M.S. Thistle' and her commanding officer, John Crispin. Soon they would be fighting among remote Ariatic islands, helping the partisans and guerillas to overwhelm the enemy who had attacked and destroyed their countries.
