About this title

Synopsis:

The deck of Ocean Mammoth stretched nearly a fifth of a mile from bridge to bows; it rose above the water-line to the height of a ten story building. Yet in a time of falling freight rates and dwindling cargoes it had no useful part to play—it had to die. But the death of a supertanker is not easily contrived if it must appear to have been an accident. The conspiracy to take Ocean Mammoth to her doom involved meticulous planning and ruthless execution. The question of responsibility remained unanswered until the final stages of the Court of Inquiry, when the truth emerges in a moment of sudden drama.

About the Author:

Antony Trew commanded an escort destroyer on Russian convoys and wrote with total authenticity of what Winston Churchill once called the "worst journey in the world." He served with the South African and Royal Navies in the South Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Western Approaches. He was awarded the DSC. He died in 1996.
