Tasked to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, Howard finds himself in the middle of the Battle of the Atlantic--a full-scale war that was a relentless, savage battle against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea in an arena known to embittered survivors simply as the killing ground. This fictionalized account of the Battle of the Atlantic, which spanned nearly six years and was the longest military campaign of World War II, is seen through both British and German eyes and deals with the extreme perils of war at sea and stands as an excellent study in leadership with characters that ring true.

Western Ocean, 1942 ... From the bridge of HMS Gladiator, Lieutenant-Commander David Howard's orders were chillingly clear. There could be no mercy. To the men who fought to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, the Battle of the Atlantic was a full-scale war. A relentless, savage war against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea - in an arena known only to its embittered survivors as the killing ground. HMS Gladiator was part of that war. An ordinary, hard-worked destroyer and her company of men. Fighting for survival in a war with no rules.
