8vo., Eleventh Impression, with double-page map; original green cloth, backstrip lettered in silver, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter very lightly creased at extremities. A PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR WITH HIS SIGNED HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The finest novel of the Royal Navy in WWII and a maritime classic. The story, based closely upon the author's own experiences, formed the basis of Charles Frend's famous feature film (1953) starring Jack Hawkins in one of his most memorable roles. So accurate is its depiction of the Battle of the Atlantic that it is one of the very few works of fiction admitted by Law to his standard bibliography ' The Royal Navy in World War Two'. SIGNED COPIES ARE VERY SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. Law, 1865.
