Brand New Book

Whilst researching an earlier book, the author unearthed details of numerous incidents at sea which happened during the Second World War that shocked and surprised him - and this book is the result of further in-depth study of those events. It reveals a long catalogue of atrocities perpetrated not just by Germany and Japan but also by the British and her Allies. Chapters include:
  • Viktor Oehrn, The Sheaf Mead and the Severn Leigh
  • Schiff 21
  • The Seavacuees of the City of Benares
  • The Laconia Affair
  • The second patrol of the HMS Torbay
  • SS Peleus - a Greek Tragedy in the Atlantic
  • The yanks give no quarter
  • The Tjisalak Massacre
  • The Trawler Noreen Mary
  • The Hell Ships
Thanks to meticulous research into a wide variety of incidents at sea, this book makes for vivid and compelling, if uneasy, reading.....
