TOP JAPANESE REVIEWER. *(More Reviews Inside E-book). During WW2 the arctic convoys endured treacherous weather and heavy bombardment from the Luftwaffe and U-boats, as they sailed perilously close to Nazi occupied Norway. Many ships and seamen were lost at sea, as the convoys brought vital aid to the Russian ports of Archangel and Murmansk. However, the advent of new technology such as; ASDIC, an earlier form of sonar; the Enigma Machine and anti-submarine weapons, helped the arctic convoys fight back, during the four arduous years of their campaign. The Russian convoys were escorted by the British navy, American navy and the Canadian navy. This year is the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of North Cape (December 1943). My late father, John Richards, then 20, served on the 'Fort Astoria' which was part of the JW.55A/JW.55B convoys which led to the Battle of North Cape. This famous naval battle climaxed with the sinking of the German battlecruiser, 'The Scharnhorst,' and the loss of nearly 2,000 German sailors. This is the story of John's arctic convoy journey. This short ebook is written in an easy to read, informative style. Packed with photographs, maps and leading personalities of the day. Ideal for readers with a general interest in WW2 and a quick read on the go!

    MR J P SMITH

    Short but informative A resume of the famous Battle of North Cape, where the battleship Duke of York and several cruisers defended an Arctic Convoy from the German battle cruiser Scharnhorst, ultimately sinking her. A lot of the text is based upon journal accounts so is not actually the words of the sailor in the first person, but it does give a good impression of how difficult life was for those merchant seamen.
