9780330244411: 73 NORTH : The Battle of the Barents Sea

On New Year's Eve, 1942, four British destroyers fought off a massive German attack in the Arctic by the pocket battleship "Lustzow", the heavy cruiser "Hipper" and six destroyers. Not one merchant ship was lost, and Hitler's fury at this failure almost spelled the end of the German surface fleet. Churchill later wrote that the action ended the German dream of another High Seas Fleet. This account of this heroic action, in which Captain Sherbrooke of HMS "Onslow" won the Victoria Cross, is more than just a description of a battle; it is also an examination of two mighty navies and the psychology, training and discipline of the commanders and their men. It shows that sheer power is not always a match for ingenuity and brazen courage.

About the Author:

Dudley Pope, a naval defense correspondent of the London Evening News, progressed to writing carefully researched naval history. C.S. Forester urged Pope to try his hand at fiction and saw the younger writer as his literary heir. Pope began what was to become an impressive series with Ramage (1965) and, over the next 24 years, produced 17 more novels tracing Lord Ramage's career. Pope died in 1997.

Review:

"When the reader is through the book he will rightly feel that he has been through the battle as well."  —The New York Times

"Expert knowledge of naval history."  —The Guardian
