Lt. Donald Cameron thought himself inured to the unremitting rigors of the wartime Navy until he joined the destroyer Burnside in one of the most important convoys of 1942. Defense and civilian suppliers, liners crammed with soldiers, and a tanker filled with highly flammable aviation fuel made up the massive convoy bound for the besieged island of Malta, with a full complement of aircraft carriers and warships to protect it. Having suffered few losses before reaching Gibraltar, morale on the Burnside was ostentatiously high -- though the chances of reaching Malta unscathed were minimal.
