AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Circe was his ship, his first commission, and those were his men. Lieutenant-Commander Jim Brady saw red, an animal surge of rage and hate, and he made his decision. They came steaming out of the rain and the carrier loomed abruptly with a mouth-drying heart-stopping fear. The three huge turrets on her fo'c'sle were almost on bearing, he saw the six thick barrels depressing and knew that the range was point blank.' - back cover (1965)
