Synopsis

Fighting Commodores explains how terrifyingly close Britain came to running out of vital imported supplies, without which she would have been unable to continue fighting, during the Second World War. Thanks, however, to a group of retired senior Naval Officers, who returned to sea in the role of Convoy Commanders, the tide was slowly turned. Alan Burn, author of the highly successful Fighting Captain tells the full story of these colourful but hitherto unsung heroes for the first time. Key Selling Points: *The first book to describe in detail the work of the merchant navy during the Second World War
