Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Dudley Bernard Egerton Pope was born in 1925 into an ancient Cornish seafaring family. He joined the Merchant Navy at the age of sixteen and spent much of his early life at sea. He was torpedoed during the Second World War and his resulting spinal injuries plagues him for the rest of his life. Towards the end of the war he turned to jouralism becoming the Naval and Defence Correspondent for the London Evening News. Encouraged by Hornblower creator CS Forester, he began writing fiction using his own experiences in the Navy and his extensive historical reseacrh as a basis. In 1965 he wrote 'Ramage', the first of his highly successful series of novels following the exploits of the heroic Lord Nicholas Ramage during the Napoleonic Wars. He continued to live aboard boats whenever possible and this was where he wrote the majority of his novels. Dudley Pope died in 1997 aged seventy one. 'The first and still favourite rival to Hornblower' - Daily Mirror -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

U-boat Inside Convoy and only one man can stop it! 24. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dudley Pope is most famous for his non-fiction history and his Hornblowerian Ramage series. In Convoy, he turns his hand to WWII and the Battle of the Atlantic.
The novel's protagonist, while recovering from a serious wound, is charged with finding out how German submarines are getting inside Allied convoys. Convoy reads like a detective novel as our hero goes through all the evidence until he comes up with a hypothesis. He then must go to sea with convoy to test his hypothesis. The action then builds to a thundering climax.
I had a few problems with this novel which keep me from giving it top marks. First, I don't believe that the Germans were conducting air raids with anywhere near the intensity implied in late 1942. Second, the climax is unrealistic and more appropriate to a Hollywood movie than real life action. In most ways, Convoy seems to be realistic and a tribute to the men who fought the Battle of the Atlantic. The conclusion is far fetched.
Convoy lacks the true to life feel of The Cruel Sea or the intensity of H.M.S. Ulysses, but it is still a good read.

Gripping WWII thriller 22. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Captures the frustration and uncertainty of preventing U-boat attacks on unarmed merchant ships. Some well-rounded characters, and a good twist for getting a U-boat past the protecting warships.
