The prolific McCutchan begins a new series of World War II naval adventures with this story of Commodore Mason Kemp and his convoy duty between Scotland and Halifax. On the difficult North Atlantic route, Kemp must deal with German surface and submarine raiders, Luftwaffe attacks, unfriendly natural elements, and the difficult personalities of crew members and military passengers alike. In a story replete with action at sea, McCutchan also manages to portray a variety of characters and to picture the effects of war strain on them all. His book pays eloquent tribute to the sailors whose convoys kept Britain supplied while winning the Battle of the Atlantic. Recommended. William C. McCully, Park Ridge P.L., Ill.

Not having looked at the Battle of the Atlantic from the merchantman's side very often before, I found this book a very interesting and entertaining change of pace. Though the commodore is not a navy man, his story has its share of battle scenes -- often reminiscent of Douglas Reeman's stories. Main and supporting characters are drawn well, and the narration on the audiocassettes was competently done. Tracking down and reading (or listening to) other McCutchan titles is definitely on my to-do list, and I encourage any fan of World War Two-at-sea stories to do the same.
