Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Macintyre was England's top U-boat destroyer during World War II, with seven kills and several captures to his credit. Here he offers his firsthand account of safeguarding convoys in the North Atlantic from roaming German subs. Pretty scary stuff.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am delighted to have located this book written by Captain Donald Macintyre. The book is in perfect condition. I have read a great deal about the second world War and the Battle of the Atlantic. This book should be compulsary reading in schools.

Donald Macintyre , along with Captain John Walker, also of ASW convoy fame, should have been knighted as they did more for the war effort and freedom of the world than all the football stars, sporting personalities and pop singers put together. They are in a world class of their own, but sadly hardly heard of today. The world never learns from the mistakes of the past. Captain John Walker did not survive the war, he died as a result of exhaustion from his tremendous dedication to his duty. Some of us still find time to contemplate those days of the war and give our respects to those brave men who gave their lives to defeat Hitler and his vile regime, so that we can live in freedom today.
