A novel about the Battle of the Atlantic, seen through both British and German eyes. Those who fought for and against the vital convoys learned respect for each other, but they were united by a common hatred. Under the pseudonym Alexander Kent, the author also wrote the "Richard Bolitho" novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent account of war at sea and home in UK 12. Juni 2001
Von Paul Sayles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Hörkassette|Verifizierter Kauf
This book deals with the perils of war and the sea. It also explores the perils of war and at home. We are introduced to the book at the hieght of the Battle of the Atlantic. It is the time or unparalled danger for ships and country as a whole. To loose the Battle of the Atlantic is to loose the war for the UK.
We are shown stop gap measures - RAF Hurricanes on adapted merchant ships for one way flights against air attackers. If the pilot was lucky he was picked up but if he was in the sea any length of time after he parachuted out or ditched his plane he became another statistic. We have the unending picture of the rescue of survivors from sinking merchant ships. It doesn't matter where the ship is, there are always the casualties.
Reeman's charecters all ring true, from the seaman anxious to become and officer and loosing his life in the process, to the bearded reserve first lieutenant who knows the merchant ships intimately from his prewar experiences. There is the hard headed sub-lieutenant anxious to better himself regardless of the cost to others. There are the sailors in the crew, who are the harshest judges of the leadership the have. The captain is the man who holds the ship together; regardless of the cost to him.
The book ends with the start of the final push onto mainland Europe at Normandy. You leave with the knowledge that Normandy wasn't the end of the war, merely the beginning of the end in Europe.
This is an excellent study in leadership by Mr. Reeman. I recommend it to all with an interest in Naval matters and the Second World War in the Atlantic.

Probably the best book he has written. I have not read his books lately and I was very impressed with this book. I read it in three days.
5.0 von 5 Sternen ONE OF THE MASTER'S FINEST 15. August 2014
Von Quarterdeck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Battle of the Atlantic was a fierce and deadly conflict fought primarily between German U-boats and Allied naval forces over nearly six years between 1939 and 1945. Douglas Reeman was a first-hand participant, serving aboard a British destroyer on convoy duty in the North Atlantic, where day-to-day existence was grim at best. Years later and well established as a best-selling author of naval fiction, Reeman returned to the Western Ocean, this time in his novel entitled Killing Ground. It begins in 1942, as Nazi U-boats are ravaging Allied convoys in the North Atlantic, which are carrying war matériel to beleaguered Britain and Russia. Lieutenant-Commander David Howard commands HMS Gladiator, a destroyer built between the two world wars, with an eclectic crew pieced together like a patchwork quilt from the regular Navy and, until recently, young men from civilian Britain. Sub-Lieutenant Richard Ayres -- a "temporary gentleman" -- comes aboard, with Gladiator preparing to embark for Iceland, where it will collect and shepherd a convoy bound for Russia. Underneath the slate-gray Arctic Sea lies an enemy U-boat, commanded by Kapitänleutnant Manfred Kleiber, waiting for a fresh prey. At twenty-six, he is a seasoned veteran, who for the first time considers his own mortality. Killing Ground is a classic epic of men and women caught up in a horrific conflict that none of them caused, but were obligated to see through to the end -- at great human sacrifice. Reeman deftly places readers on Gladiator's bridge, sharing the gripping tension with Howard and Ayres, as the ship carries on a ruthless private war with a murderous unseen enemy. Page after page, Reeman's splendid prose speaks authentically, describing naval life and battles at sea as only one who has been there can. The smells and sounds of a merchant ship afire or Oerlikon anti-aircraft guns firing at an enemy fighter excite the senses. In the end, though, it is the poignant humanity, the inner thoughts and emotions of his characters, that set Reeman's novels apart from others. Killing Ground is one of this naval fiction master's finest.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of Reeman's best 11. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Atlantic convoys and convoy escorting during WWII were heroic, but definitely unsung. Douglas Reeman brought the duty and the men who did it into focus, as well as portraying the women who supported them on the home front. Some of the bast character development among Reeman's many modern naval warfare works.
