9780099439875: Battlecruiser

The Battlecruiser - in their time this class of ships was considered one of the great triumphs of the Royal Navy, as swift as a destroyer but packing a deadly firepower equal to any ship afloat. But the ships had one fatal flaw: their armour could be pierced by a single enemy shell. The Battle of Jutland exposed this Achilles' heel, then further disasters followed in the next world war with the tragic sinkings of the Hood and Repulse. 1943 - Of all her class, HMS Reliant and one other have survived. Reliant has the reputation of a lucky ship but when Captain Guy Sherbrooke joins her he knows he could be her last captain. As Britain prepares to invade occupied Europe, Reliant will be thrown head first into the conflagration. All those who sail in her know that there can be no half measures: only death or glory awaits HMS Reliant.

About the Author:

Douglas Reeman did convoy duty in the Navy in the Atlantic, the Arctic, and the North Sea. He has written over thirty novels under his own name and more than twenty bestselling historical novels featuring Richard Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

From AudioFile:

Here's a nicely told saga of the last British battlecruiser, the HMS RELIANT, as she goes about her final tasks in WWII. With more than 12 million copies of his books in print under his own name and that of Alexander Kent, Reeman knows how to tell a terse, technically accurate, somewhat predictable war story. Reader David Rintoul continues Chivers's tradition of engaging, highly competent British actors; he makes each character come alive with intonation alone.
