Kleber's convoy by Antony Trew( Book )
20 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 587 libraries worldwide
Gritty, exceptionally graphic account of a World War 2 Murmansk Run convoy seen from the dual perspectives of the British naval commander ( and crew) of a convoy escort vessel ? the fictitious destroyer VENGEFUL ? and the commander of the lead U-boat of a ?Rundeltaktik? (wolf pack) that assaults the convoy off Russia?s Kola Peninsula. Set in late 1944, when Germany?s defeat was no longer in question. Trew is at his best in describing British Admiralty convoy procedures, communication systems and tactics, and in conveying a very real (and horrific) sense of Murmansk Run convoy action. He is less successful with the series of forced coincidences that serve as his plot?s foundation (the opposing British and German commanders were once fast friends in pre-War day; they unknowingly meet in fierce Arctic combat that ultimately proves fatal to both naval men and nearly all of their respective crews). Still, Trew?s work compares favorably with such classics as H.M.S. ULYSSES and definitely deserves a read by anyone interested in the infamous Murmansk Run

The sea break by Antony Trew( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Lieutenant Commander Widmark had grown to detest the enemy with a pathological hatred. He truly earned his nickname "The Butcher" in Mediterranean waters, deriding the Geneva Convention and the cowardice that delayed action against the enemy for diplomatic reasons. In his view, war was a rough and bloody business in which those who stopped at nothing would be victorious. His greatest adventure was the organisation and execution of a private cutting-out operation designed - regardless of any consequences, bloody or disciplinary - to strike a single, telling blow for his own side. Widmark develops a remarkable plan to seize and sail the 8,000 tonne German vessel, Hagenfels, from the neutral East African port of Lourenco Marques. All these events, and the fantastic developments thereafter, are brought to life by Trew's powerful narrative and knowledge of seafaring
