9780141007328: The Cruel Sea

A novel as large as its theme - which is the War at Sea; as deep as its setting - the whole Atlantic; as human as the men who fought the packs of U-boats to bring the convoys through.

About the Author:

Nicholas Monsarrat was born in Liverpool in 1910, and educated at Winchester and Trinity College, Cambridge. At the beginning of the war he joined the R.N.V.R. as a sub-lieutenant and attained the rank of lieutenant-Commander, spending his time on convoy work, latterly in command of a frigate. He was awarded the Heinemann Foundation Prize for Literature in 1951, and the Coronation Medal in 1953. Nicholas Monsarrat died in August 1979 and his ashes were later scattered over the sea.
