Like all young men of a certain age, Harry Gilmour had his own notion of how a naval battle should be. This wasn't it.
Norway, 1940: Sub Lieutenant Harry Gilmour's first encounter with battleship action is not the adventure he had hoped for. Faced with a thankless task and ill equipped to handle it, Gilmour's inexperience leads to a damning allegation. His future hangs in the balance.
But then Lieutenant Peter Dumaresq steps in to offer him a lifeline - an advanced navigation course that will take him aboard a crack submarine, HMS Pelorus, under the command of a Royal Navy hero. Faced with a possible court martial, Harry chooses life underwater. Once aboard, however, Harry is confronted for the first time by the full horror of submarine warfare. If he can just overcome his fears, it will be the making of him.
Because survival itself is the challenge now. For Harry and the rest of the crew, the next depth charge could be the one that sinks them.

A Great Yarn
It’s a great story which gives you the feeling you are in the sub with the crew. I had an expectation when I purchased the book but in reality it far exceeds my expectation.
A difficult one but probably Harry. You almost felt you were him when listening to the book.
James read the book with very clear diction and didn’t send me to sleep as many narrators do!
Listening to the book in bed, in the dark, gives you the feeling that you are there.
I’d like to have listened to in one sitting but couldn’t spare eleven hours.
This is only the second book I have listened to on Audible and was a truly amazing experience.
wow! What a thrilling read....lots of tension
