9781557506962: Escort: The Battle of the Atlantic (Classics of Naval Literature)

This is the story of one man’s war and of the Royal Navy’s escort vessels — trawlers, corvettes and destroyers — that guarded Britain’s ocean life-lines across the Atlantic against the ravaging forays of U-Boats and surface raiders.

This highly acclaimed firsthand account of convoy escort operations in the North Atlantic from 1939 to 1945 is based on Rayner's astonishing war record.
