This book literally changed my life.
In the eleventh grade in Greenville, South Carolina, i had an English teacher who designated Thursday as "Free Reading Day" and encouraged the entire class to read anything they wanted to (well, within limits -- "Playboy" would have been Right Out, i'm sure.) -- and, in case you had nothing of your own, she laid out an assortment of magazines and books on a table at the front of the room.
On that table, one Thursday, was a copy of "The Cruel Sea". Since i've always been at least a bit interested in sea stories, and it looked interesting, i picked it up. From the first i was hooked solidly.
In the next three or so years, i reread it twice at least, possibly more than that.
And then i joined the Navy -- and i am sure that it was because of what i read in this book, and what i sensed behind it, in what Monsarrat -- who, like his viewpoint character, Lockhart, was there from the beginning, working his way up to command his own ship before the end of the war -- didn't so much say as assume about the sea and the Navy -- *any* Navy.
Monsarrat presents us here with a brotherhood of the sea, corny as that idea may sound. Sailors, more than the other Armed Forces, tend to regard other sailors -- even enemy sailors -- as brothers in arms, and, as Monsarrat says, the only true enemy is the cruel sea itself.
As he shows us here, the sailor who was your enemy five minutes ago, who was trying to kill you as you tried to kill him, is merely another survivor to be rescued from the cruel sea once you've sunk his ship.

Format: Taschenbuch
The war generation has considered The Cruel Sea to be a classic of WW2 naval literature not entirely without a reason. There are scores of books about heroic deeds during the war, and from a historical viewpoint many of them are still very readable, even if they are often slightly tainted by an uncritical patriotism typical for the period, and which feels slightly out of place today. Without being in any sense unpatriotic from a British viewpoint, TCS stands out in this respect by offering a comparatively very straight and unadorned view on the lives of a group of naval soldiers during the convoy battles in the Atlantic during WW2. The protagonists at first serve on a Corvette, a small, unspectacular type of ship which was lightly armed and barely faster than the merchantmen it was guarding against U-boats. Most of the sailors are reservists and not professional soldiers, and the appeal of the book lies in how the author portrays the way these ordinary men cope with the monotony of shipboard life, the occasional numbing violence and the general hardships of war service in the Atlantic. Their personal stories are set against a historical backdrop which is highly accurate, and the overall atmosphere the book conveys is probably very close to the tiring war experience that an average sailor - who is not a hero, but as brave as the next man - would have had at the time. In my personal opinion, this approach makes the book a very valuable account of service in the Royal Navy during WW2, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to readers interested in this period.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Michael W. Perry am 11. Juni 2008
Format: Taschenbuch
Written by someone who experienced WWII in convoy escort duty, The Cruel Sea is quite realistic in a double sense: You get the drama of the war as well as the times when war is dull or frustrating, for example when an officer dumps paperwork onto subordinates. Realistic without being cynical is a good combination.

And if you'd like to read another book on this theme but with more of the immediacy of the war, try C. S. Forester's, The Good Shepherd, the classic account of a single convoy at the height of the war with U-boats as told by the captain of a US destroyer. Unfortunately, new it seems to be available only in an overpriced but ugly reprint, so you might want to find a used copy. I have a paperback version that I reread every few years.

--Michael W. Perry, editor of Chesterton on War and Peace: Battling the Ideas and Movements that Led to Nazism and World War II

Format: Taschenbuch
The late Nicholas Monsarrat's The Cruel Sea (originally published in 1951) is a powerful and riveting novel of maritime endurance and daring set in the North Atlantic during World War II. Carefully scripted and written, the reader is drawn into this story of the British ships Compass Rose and Saltash, and their desperate cat-and-mouse game on the high seas with Nazi U-boats. This fine trade paperback edition from Burford Books will introduce a whole new generation of action/adventure enthusiasts to a truly skilled and engaging writer whose ability to involve the reader from first page to last is rarely equaled and never surpassed.
