9781590136799: Killing Ground (Modern Naval Fiction Library)

Tasked to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, Howard finds himself in the middle of the Battle of the Atlantic—a full-scale war that was a relentless, savage battle against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea in an arena known to embittered survivors simply as the killing ground. This fictionalized account of the Battle of the Atlantic, which spanned nearly six years and was the longest military campaign of World War II, is seen through both British and German eyes and deals with the extreme perils of war at sea and stands as an excellent study in leadership with characters that ring true.

Review:

"A stirring tale of the Atlantic war ... one can almost smell the sea and the burning oil as Jitler's U-boats wreak havoc" * Sunday Express * "Vivid naval action at its most authentic" * Sunday Times * "Mr Reeman writes with great knowledge about the sea and those who sail on it" * The Times *
