Publisher's Summary

The crew of HM submarine Rugged are on a high-stakes high seas mission.

Mediterranean, 1942. Britain is at war with Germany.

Responsible for protecting British convoys in the Channel in a small Chaser, young Peter Sinclair, RN, is thrown head-first into the horrors of war.

Sent to serve in HM submarine Rugged, defending convoys delivering food and supplies to the besieged island of Malta, Sub-Lieutenant Sinclair finds himself 120 feet beneath the sea, surrounded by deadly mines and just three miles from the enemy's doorstep.

In a bold night raid on a small harbor on the north African coast, the famous "Fighting Tenth" submarine Flotilla comes under attack by enemy E-boats, whose relentless depth-charging threaten to sink Rugged to the bottom of the ocean.

When the Captain of a British submarine is captured, Sinclair, Able Seaman Bill Hawkins and a crack team of Commandos undertake a deadly mission to rescue the officer from a German-controlled prison on an Italian island.

But can they outwit a lethal enemy? Or will Sinclair's first taste of submarine warfare be his last?

Why all the good reviews?

I’m not sure where all the 4* and 5* reviews come from for this audiobook- certainly not from people who have listened to the Harry Gilmour WWII submariner series; which puts this drivel to shame.

I struggled to find anything positive to say: the story itself is OK but highly improbable (a navy sub-lieutenant on his second patrol is hardly likely to be asked to lead a land attack on a Nazi-held castle just because he made an error), and the dialogue between characters aims for: ‘pip pip, what-ho old chap’ and just sounds stilted and wooden. Example: a German SS commander says, ‘not so fast, English pig dogs! I am about to liquidate you!’

Baaaaahahahaha!! I mean, seriously - come on. That’s just laughable. Tally ho, submariner Sinclair!
