Format: Hardcover
Though I’ve read and enjoyed all 15 of Philip McCutchan’s Cameron stories, CAMERON IN COMMAND stands as one of my favorites. Cameron tends to be a rather two-dimensional and colorless character, but the author more than compensates for it with nonstop action sequences punctuated by the colorful dialogue of the ship’s lower-deck crewmembers. In this slim volume, we find Cameron, now promoted to Lieutenant Commander, R.N.V.R, in command of the corvette HMS Briar (Royal Navy corvettes, small, lightly-armed convoy escorts, were typically named after flowers or plants). The time is mid-1942, after Britain--along with the U.S. and the Netherlands--has been swept out of her East Asian possessions by attacking Japanese forces.

The story begins with Briar, after embarking a commando unit, departing the East African coast and proceeding across the South Atlantic to investigate and attempt to stop a suspected Japanese plan to round Cape Horn and mount an attack on the weakly-defended Falkland islands. To even the odds between one tiny RN corvette against a flotilla of Japanese cruisers and destroyers, the author contrives to the route the Japanese through the Beagle Channel, an inland route through the Cape allowing them to steal into the South Atlantic undetected…or so they think. (You’ll need to pull up a Google map of Cape Horn to better understand this dimension of the story.)

Meanwhile, aboard Briar, Cameron deploys his commandos to place demolition charges at key choke points in the narrow channel with the objective of bottling-up the Japanese force after they enter its confines. But timing is absolutely critical: should any of charges fail to detonate at precise intervals, not only will Briar be doomed but the Empire of Japan will gain a strategic foothold in the South Atlantic.

McCutchan’s CAMERON SERIES should by prime candidates for reissue in e-book and trade paperback formats.
