It is February 1942 and the war in the Atlantic looks grim for the Allied convoys. The 'Great Blackout' has started, leaving the spy centre of Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire at a loss as to what the Nazis are planning. U-boat Command has changed the Hydra cipher. The Enigma cannot be broken. Cipher experts can no longer eavesdrop on Nazi command, which leaves convoys open for attack by packs of marauding Nazi submarines. Winning the Battle of the Atlantic will surely give Hitler a final victory. And who can stop him?

About the author (2001)

Dudley Bernard Egerton Pope was born in 1925 into an ancient Cornish seafaring family. He joined the Merchant Navy at the age of sixteen and spent much of his early life at sea. He was torpedoed during the Second World War and resulting spinal injuries plagued him for the rest of his life. Toward the end of the war, Pope turned to journalism, and also researched naval history and in time became an authority on the Napoleonic era and Nelson's exploits, resulting in several well-received volumes, especially on the Battles of Copenhagen and Trafalgar. He also began writing fiction using his own experiences in the navy and his extensive historical research as a basis. In 1965, he wrote Ramage, the first of a highly successful series of novels. Another renowned series is centered on Ned Yorke, a buccaneer in the seventeenth-century Caribbean. He lived aboard boats whenever possible, and most of his adult life was spent in the Caribbean. He died in 1997 at the age of seventy-one.
