Storm of War

Lieutenant Donald Cameron thought himself inured to the rigours of the wartime Navy...until he joined the destroyer Burnside, and one of the most important convoys of 1942. Defense and civilian suppliers, liners crammed with soldiers, and a 21,000-ton tanker — the British Racer — loaded with highly inflammable aviation spirit made up a massive, unwieldy convoy bound for t Lieutenant Donald Cameron thought himself inured to the rigours of the wartime Navy...until he joined the destroyer Burnside, and one of the most important convoys of 1942. Defense and civilian suppliers, liners crammed with soldiers, and a 21,000-ton tanker — the British Racer — loaded with highly inflammable aviation spirit made up a massive, unwieldy convoy bound for the besieged island of Malta; and a full complement of aircraft carriers and warships was detailed to protect it. Having suffered few losses from German U-boat harassment before reaching Gibraltar, morale in the Burnside seemed high — though the chances of reaching Malta unscathed were minimal. Despite a constant barrage of anti-aircraft guns, the dive-bombing Stukas closed in rapidly, forcing the convoy into the path of the E-boats’ menacing torpedo trails… the Lieutenant is keeping his wits about him. A true test of determination, resilience and good old fashioned strategic warfare is essential. But will it be enough to get them across the Mediterranean to safety? ‘Storm of War’ is the fifth instalment in the Donald Cameron Naval Thriller series. It was originally published as ‘Cameron in the Gap’. Praise for Philip McCutchan: "A nautical war buffs feast...[McCutchan] keeps an authoritative hand on the wheel and his descriptions of battles at sea ring with laconic truth." —The New York Times Book Review Philip McCutchan served at sea in the Royal Navy throughout World War II. From destroyers on Atlantic and Mediterranean escort duties, to a battle-cruiser, a battleship and an ocean boarding vessel, he ended his war service in an aircraft-carrier. His interests include naval and military affairs prior to 1946. He is the author ‘Convoy of War’, ‘Dangerous Waters’ and ‘Deed of Glory’.

    A difficult and trying mission A difficult and trying mission, the book as well as the plot. It is a testament to the story writing that I could maintain sufficient interest to finish this book. It is an interesting plot but for an American reader it is a tough sloth. The dialog is very difficult to follow with slang and unfamiliar terminology.

    They keep going on and on. Another great read. The story just keeps going with another exciting adventure for Donald Cameron. This one shows how he is developing into a top rate officer.

    Best of 5! Having done some binge reading, this Storm of War is the most polished yet and has a feel of authenticity about it. Nice play of the antagonists who make up in the end, boys own adventures en route and Cameron pulls it off once again. Enjoyable breakfast reading.

    Great Book I found this book riveting and very informative. It showed the bravery of the crews on the Malta convoys, and all convoys.

    A REAL THRILLER Over the years I have forgotten just how bloody and terrible the Second World War really was. This story gave me a vivid reminder of how it was for those at sea.

    Not McCutchen's best. Not Mr. MeTuchen's best book by far, but still a different kind of story from what he usually writes. I've never heard of a torpedo getting stuck in a rudder, and so this book was of a different tone. Not McCutchen's best.
