BRIGHT, CLEAN COPY IN UNCLIPPED DUSTWRAPPER

Published: Gollancz, [1944]

Stock code: 40518

Price: £96.00

Published two months after the first edition. Fictionalised but accurate account of the author's five months in a destroyer on the Murmansk run. Generally considered one of the finest accounts of life at sea; certainly a minor classic of WWII. ALL EARLY PRINTINGS ARE SCARCE IN THE DUSTWRAPPER. Law, 1062.
