In August 1944, as the war in Europe enters its final throes and Germany faces defeat, Captain Berger, master of the German supply ship Deutschland, peacefully sailing up and down the coast of Brazil, decides to risk sailing the old barquentine home to Kiel, 5000 miles across oceans dominated by the Allied navies. This book is the epic account of this act of reckless courage. At times becalmed, at times whipped by tropical storms; challenged by the Royal Navy when she takes on Swedish disguise; threatened by the dissensions of men under stress - often it seems that the Deutschland makes progress by the sheer determination of her crew.(Hardback Out of Print)
