One of the classic naval adventure stories of World War II, Monsarrat's novel tells the tale of two British ships trying to escape destruction by wolf pack U-boats hunting in the North Atlantic.
I read everything the small library the naval station on Guam had by this author. I loved his writing. But that was 35 years ago and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then and I had forgotten the author's name and the titles of his books. But I knew when I read the first page of The Cruel Sea that THIS WAS IT!! The books I have been looking for in the past ten years. :)
Now I'm looking forward to a nice leisurely time happily reading through my library's books by this author. What a treat to look forward too.
