Douglas Reeman at his best!

Douglas Reeman is a master at bringing to life the Royal Navy at war, he draws the listener or reader into the triumphs and tragedy of the war at sea!

His characters are believable and you really get a sense of the life and times they are living through.

I would be remiss if I also didn't mention his ability to bring the ships to life, they are as much a character in the story as the people who serve in them!

The listener may recognise aspects of the story that mirror that of the famous Royal Navy Battleship HMS Warspite , her story has been told in numerous books but I'd recommend the one simply titled WARSPITE!

If you like a good sea story with full, believable characters, you'll enjoy this book!
