"Tension and high excitement! ... In this book C.S.Forester has compressed the taut drama of one of the great sea campaigns of history."
New York Herald Tribune
"The history is all well known, of course, and the ending will come as no surprise to anyone. But the joy and excitement is in Forester's ability to tell the story and relate the history with all the bated breath and suspense of the very best thrillers. If you enjoy history, then you'll certainly enjoy this brief re-telling of one of the decisive turning points of the WW II."
