Publisher's Summary

The story of men who rose to heroism, and then to something greater, HMS Ulysses takes its place alongside The Caine Mutiny and The Cruel Sea as one of the classic novels of the navy at war. It is the compelling story of Convoy FR77 to Murmansk - a voyage that pushes men to the limits of human endurance as they are crippled by enemy attack and the bitter cold of the Arctic.


What the Critics Say

"A story of exceptional courage which grips the imagination." (Daily Telegraph)
"It deserves an honourable place among 20th-century war books." (Daily Mail)

Shouldn't be abridged.

This is a fantastic book however, abridging it ruins a great work.
I personally would read the full version as you get a better grasp of events and a better story all together.

The waste of a great book

When you read this book, the writer, Alistair Maclean gives the story atmosphere a
really great atmosphere, but this version as no atmosphere at all. It's just like the
narrater was reading a telephone book. It is a shame that Audible have spoiled all of the books by Alistair Maclean. They have cut a lot of pieces out of the stories and made them shorter spoiling great books. I will be sending this book back because it is a very poor version, a waste of a great book.
