Re-commissioned at Chatham on 18 October, Commissioned: 21 Feb, I read this book a great many years ago, probably in my 30's when I enjoyed Alistair McClain books.

I decided to revisit this book when I came across some papers indicating that my late father in law was conscripted during World War 2 and served in the Royal Navy/5(). H.M.S. Brilliant, H.M.S Anthony H40, and the Free and the French frigate Croix de Lorraine were the escorts.
