Descripción

London 1983, MacDonald, 2nd in this series, hard bound in dust jacket, first UK edition, FINE/FINE CONDITION, ( dj price clipped), 6x9, 284 pages.Grey Seal is a Grimsby trawler, unlovely and unloved, scruffy, rusty, coal-burning - but reliable, and to Lieutenant Commander Paton and his crew, home. In this, the second saga of Grey Seal and the men who fought and died on her during World War 2, she survives the shambles of the Norway campaign, struggles through the bloody evacuation of Dunkirk, and participates in the first of the hit-and-run commando raids on Nazi-dominated Europe - and through it all remains very much herself, a glorious Coronation Street of a vessel, with a tradition, a courage, and make-doand-mend character all her own.Meet again Crispin Paton, R.N., leader of men; his First Lieutenant, Brian Phelp, R.N.R.; Midshipman Carnac; C.P.O. 'Tiger' Read; Seamen Morris and Rhind - not forgetting Jolson, the ship's dog - as they brawl and loot their heroic way across war-torn seas of the Channel and Baltic, fighting the Germans with single-minded intensity, and the inefficiency of their own high command with an almost equal fervour. Whether tearing down their craft to the very decks to supplement their fuel supply, outwitting enemy craft with outrageously improvised explosions, or rescuing gold, plans, and damsels from occupied Europe, Grey Seal and her crew share a surging vitality and an indomitable will to win which epitomised the United Kingdom with her back to the wall.
