The battlecruiser was hailed as a triumph, able to outrun and outshoot its heavier opponents. However, it had a fatal flaw, the weakness of its armour. In 1943, when Captain Guy Sherbrooke joins H.M.S. Reliant, he knows he may be her last captain. The other battlecruisers have already been destroyed. H.M.S. Reliant is a legend and a survivor and as Britain prepares to invade occupied Europe, Sherbrooke knows that only death or glory awaits her.
