Descripton: A wartime account of the author's experiences in a British corvette on convoy duty in the North Atlantic and in the Mediterranean. In spite of the fact that it was censored before publication, like every other wartime writing, it gives a detailed and informative overview of life and action on corvettes in the first years of the war. Much more lighthearted in tone than the author's later novel, The Cruel Sea, yet does not shy away from describing some of the grim realities of war.
First published in 1943, this book was republished as the first book in Three Corvettes.
