Overall a Very Clean, Tight and Bright 'Near Fine' copy. "Many people are familiar with the 'strategic' facts of the war at sea; the convoy battles, the merchant tonnage sunk and the U-boats lost. Phil Carradice and Terry Breverton, however, have brought together a very diverse range of personal accounts and achive-based evidence to illustrate the human side - and specifically Welsh - of the story. 360 seamen from Barry were killed in the course of WW2. The age of some of the dead - 15 and 16 year olds - is a shock and the book helps to highlight the sacrifice they made - (R. J. Roberts). ". See Images. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
