In the winter of 1943, three young friends from Plymouth, having joined the navy, find themselves as part of the Arctic convoys. These naval missions were amongst the most hazardous of all. For one of the friends, Frank, it is however a dream posting – he has always been obsessed with the navy.
This mission will test his resolve and that of his friends. As the convoy comes under attack in the treacherously icy and stormy waters of the Arctic, they must strain with every sinew to survive.
Tom Palmer’s historical novels are very popular, and with good reason. They are exciting, thoughtful and emotive. This latest is no exception and is thoroughly recommended as a terrific read.
