Book description
This is a story about a peace-time passenger ship converted to a troop carrier, and her crew on a single fateful voyage. The m.v. Patriarch sailed from Bristol in 1942, at a time when the enemy was sinking, on average, an Allied ship every four hours and the prospect of the crew returning safely to their homes and families was, statistically, not good. Seamanship of the highest standard would not, alone, be sufficient to guarantee their safety, for this was a time when Britain's 'darkest hour' loomed ominously close. Tony Gyles writes with authority and the benefits of first hand knowledge of the times and the conditions that prevailed aboard ship
