Nicholas Monsarrat, unquestionably the best writer on sea warfare during World War II, saw the horror firsthand as a frigate captain in the British Navy. In dramatic, vivid language, this unforgettable collection records the terrible years between 1940 and 1943. It includes the autobiographical It Was Cruel; A Ship to Remember, about the sinking of the Lancastria in 1940 (3,000 men lost their lives); and I Was There, HMS Marlborough Will Enter Harbour, and The Ship That Died of Shame--three short fictional pieces.
