"A readable, fast-paced naval thriller successfully blending historical fiction with real events." -The Globe and Mail

"Deftly blends serious history with exciting prose.... A genuine contribution to our understanding of the Battle of the Atlantic and an exciting read -- a model popular history, sound, scholarly, and serious in aim." -L. Granatstein, Quill and Quire

At the time ,everyone regardless of age, knew who the enemy was,sacrificed and endured rationing and supported the war effort.There was no such thing as dissenters , traitors or conscientious objectors as we saw in the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
All this was what took place with the civilians;but the real war took place on the battlefields of Eujrope and on the ocean between North America and Europe.
This book does an excellent job of telling what the navies of Germany and the Allies went through.It does this by following the experiences of two ships,the RCN St.Croix and the German U-Boat ,U305 and their crews .
. The book is extremely well researched and filled with details.It reads like a novel but in fact everything is true and verified as much as possible from actual records.
