Product Description:

In their trusty fishing boat Genevieve, armed with a flame thrower and limited ammunition, a small group of officers and men take a stand against the might of the German army after the fall of France in World War II. This is classic Shute: at once a thrilling adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and a heartbreaking tale of the ravages of war.

Review:

"A magnificent thrill; it is also a tale of character, for every member of the little ship's company is worth meeting. A book that should not be missed" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Mr Shute's style is ideal for this kind of book. He revels in incident and he draws his people with loving care. Here, he's reminiscent of H. E. Bates at his best; that same ability to make you passionately interested in anything he's interested in, and to make the most outlandish happening seem credible his characters are so real"

"No other writer has brought to fiction of this type quite the same lively sympathy and warmth of imagination or left so engaging an impression of truthfulness....Mr Shute always has good things to offer...the power to convey the springs of heroic conduct in the lightest and least assuming of tones" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Based around a group aboard a converted trawler in 1942, this is a grand tale of sacrifice and courage and superbly structured" ( Express)
