264 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0333216148 Includes "a glossary of Naval lower-deck terminology and technical terms" and "a brief account of the fortunes of convoy PQ17". "The year is 1942. A small group of merchant ships escorted by two old destroyers, a corvette and two trawlers are ploughing through Arctic seas to northern Russia in the wake of the ill-fated convoy PQ17. For Ordinary Signalman Ludd - inevitably dubbed 'Lobby' - it is his first trip and li k e l y t o be a tough one. The convoy must run the gauntlet of U-boats, aircraft - there is even the threat that enemy battleships will put to sea; finally there is the other enemy - the bitterest weather, the cruelest seas in the world...Seen f ro m th e p er sp ectives of both wardroom and lower deck, (although a work of fiction, this book) gives an entirely authentic account of the experience of sailors on Arctic convoys during World War II. From the final shore leave in Liverpool to th e a rr iva l at an in hospitable Russian port, through tragedy and much suffering, the men in the cramped messdecks maintain their unflagging humour to the end. Old sailors will relive every minute of these days, and in the characters recognise t hems elv es 3 5 yea rs a go; others will be gripped by a compelling story." Cigarette smaoke odor, minor qwrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has minor edge wear, very light browning on spine and at top edge. Ver y Goo d-/V ery G oo d-
