Publisher's Summary

The crack German cruiser Prinz Luitpold had always been lucky in battle. To the beleaguered army on the Baltic coast she was their one remaining symbol of hope. But it is the summer of 1944, and on every front the war is going badly for Germany. When the order comes to leave the Baltic to attack and destroy enemy shipping in the Atlantic, Kapitan zur See Dieter Hechler knows that once out in this vast killing ground it will only be a matter of time before the hunter becomes the hunted.

A difficult book for me to follow

Would you try another book written by Douglas Reeman or narrated by David Rintoul?

Yes, am going to try To Risks Unknown.

What was most disappointing about Douglas Reeman’s story?

I didn't follow most of the plots and I guess naval stories are not my bag.

What does David Rintoul bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Voices to the characters, though I might've been able to follow the book better if I'd read it. then again, I probably wouldn't read it at all if I had the choice to.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

I didn't enjoy this book and found the story difficult to follow. I didn't particularly like any of the characters in it.
