Synopsis: The raid on Zeebrugge is the climax of this thrilling and authentic novel, the second in Alexander Fullerton's series of novels featuring young sub-lieutenant Nick Everard. On St George's Day, 23 April 1918 the Royal Navy launched a desperate assault on the German base of Zeebrugge. In the sixty minutes from touchdown to withdrawal, eleven VCs were won and hundreds lay dead or wounded. Churchill said the raid 'may well rank as the finest feat of arms of the Great War'. Alexander Fullerton's descriptions of minelaying operations, coastal patrols in foul Channel weather and the savagery of clashes with enemy destroyers are heightened by his outstanding ability to recreate the war as it was felt and lived.
From the Publisher:
Young Nick Everard leads the raid on Zeebrugge, termed by Churchill "the finest feat of arms of the Great War."
Nick Everard is Executive Officer of the destroyer Mackerel, which has spent the winter months of 1917-18 endlessly patrolling the Straits of Dover to prevent German ships from reaching the Atlantic. Despite his lack of respect for his captain, Everard achieves successes in action. Then he is summoned for top-secret special duty: to command a raid to capture a German trawler's crew and bring them back to Dover. The raid is prefatory to the St. George's Day operation in which, in the space of an hour, the German naval fortifications at Zeebrugge are destroyed. And Everard, at the age of twenty-two, is rewarded with his first destroyer command.
Alexander Fullerton attended the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, at the age of thirteen. He served in battleships, cruisers, destroyers, and submarines and has written many novels about the sea in addition to the nine volumes of the Everard series.
