"This is the drama of 24 hours of war, the revealing story of the sensational breakout of the German Cruisers Scharnhorst & Gneisenau from Brest, their passage through the Straits of Dover and eventual arrival in German waters. Terence Robertson, who served in the navy during the war, tells the amazing story and examines the events which led up to a climax which shocked the British public who had hitherto regarded the channel as ours. He describes the superb courage of Esmonde, VC who led his squadron of obsolete Swordfish in a gallant but hopeless attack on the cruisers." -- dust jacket blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
