240pp. Book clean and square. Bright gilt title over firm spine. Leaves clean. Plain blue boards undamaged. Illustrated, loose-plastic protected dustjacket nominally edgeworn only. It is 1942: The Mediterranean operation 'Stonehenge' gets underway - a convoy laden with desperately needed fuel, food and ammunition for the beseiged island of Malta. Captain Robert Thurston commands the British cruiser HMS 'Marathon', one of the escort vessels on this Malta run. Thurston, a career naval officer with a record of conspicuous gallantry under fire, is a man under stress. He previously had one ship go to the bottom, leaving pitifully few survivors . . . Soon 'Marathon' is crippled by determined enemy action and attempts to limp toward Alexandria, constantly under attack from sea, air and weather. Men and machines are stretched to their limit, but the most deadly threat to Thurston's own life is yet to be faced . . . Book weight approx. 510g.
