The Arctic Convoys of World War IIBook - 2012
"[The author] tells the complete story of the Allied forces' Arctic convoys and the vital role they played in helping Russia repel the Germans. The tale involves torpedo attacks and survival at sea in open boats in the biting cold; Stuka dive bombers, naval guns, and weeks of total darkness in the Arctic winter; ships disappearing into the sea because of the ice and snow that weighted down their decks; and political calculations that needlessly put countless men into harm's way"--Dust jacket.
