Overview

C.S. Forester's name on a novel gives promise of excellent entertainment, but always something more--the development of character, the flow of history, and the stress of events. THE GOOD SHEPHERD is in this genre.

A convoy is ploughing through icy, submarine-infested North Atlantic seas during the most critical days of WW II. In charge is Commander George Krause, an untested veteran of the U.S. navy. He faces 48 hours of desperate peril.

THE LAST NINE DAYS OF THE BISMARCK is one of the most dramatic sea stories of all time: the death of Hitler's proudest, deadliest battleship, at the moment when it might have turned the course of history.
