From military mavericks, underwater warriors, and a swashbuckling sea wolf to daring raids, great escapes, and shocking defeats: these real-life stories capture every nuance of the world of war. Vividly written by the finest historians, and by those who survived those often-terrible times, each book offers a unique perspective on battle...and the courage that turns soldiers into heroes.

Nicholas Monsarrat, the finest writer on sea warfare during World War II, saw the horror firsthand as a frigate captain in the British Navy. In dramatic, vivid language, he recounts the terrible years between 1940 and 1943, including the autobiographical It Was Cruel: A Ship to Remember (about the sinking of the Lancastria in 1940); I Was There; HMS Marlborough Will Enter Harbour; and The Ship That Died of Shame -- three short fictional pieces.
