Attack and Sink: The Death of Convoy SC42 - Bernard Edwards

Leo Cooper, 2001, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Very Good DJ. DJ creased at the front flap, very slightly loose but a handsome copy none the less.

Sixty three merchant ships, many of them British; a number old and dilapidated and all slow and heavy-laden with vital sup- plies for the United Kingdom, were strung out in 12 columns abreast, covering an area of 25 miles of inhospitable ocean. They set sail from Nova Scotia at the time when the German U-boats were sinking more than one hundred ships a month. Their escort of one destroyer and three corvettes of the Royal Canadian Navy, all untried in combat, was hopelessly outclassed. The battle for SC42 began when the convoy was in sight of the coast of Greenland, lasted for seven days, and covered 1,200 miles of ocean.
