This title presents one of the bleakest episodes in Royal Naval history. Here is the inside story as told by the men who survived. It is the story of a brutally hard convoy that, according to official records, was incident free. It is the convoy that the British Admiralty tried to cover up. The Royal Navy betrayed the men of convoy PQ17. An order was issued by the British Admiralty...'scatter' escorts. These were murderous orders that broke a prime naval convention and left the merchantmen and rescue ships unprotected. German fighter planes and submarines attacked them without mercy. Of 31 ships, 24 were lost together with their complements of 300 men. By the end of this book you do feel that you too have lived through PQ17's disastrous story. And that you can appreciate the enormous courage and endurance of the men who served in its bitter Arctic cold.
