Captain Sam is an experienced convoy commander and captain of a Mahan-class destroyer. He is responsible for thousands of men in warships and the merchant ships of this convoy that must get to England for that country to survive. The Germans had proved the master of the Atlantic in this war, this battle of the Atlantic. German submarines had sunk thousands of ships. Those ships carried desperately needed things for England, everything from food, medicines, and clothing. And naturally, things to make war--things needed to invade France and end the terror the Germans created all over Europe.
This was the time of the war when the Allies finally had enough ships and aircraft to counter the Germans in the Atlantic. The Germans were still very formidable. The Germans were desperate to stop supplies from reaching England; otherwise, they knew it will get much worse for them.
