Product Description:

At the outbreak of World War II, only four battlecruisers remain, the fatal flaw of their weak armour has destroyed the rest. As Captain Sherbrooke joins HMS Reliant in 1943, he knows he may be her last captain. There can be no half-measures - only death or glory.

Review:

"Excellent ... what Reeman likes is plot and characterisation, and, like many a good craft, his lines are good and clean" (Guy Walters The Times)

"If any author deserves to be 'piped' into bookshops with full naval honours it is Douglas Reeman, without question master of both genres of naval fiction - historical and modern" (Books Magazine)
