The US remained neutral and there was no such thing as World War II. But these were the most desperate times for the Royal Navy, which was stretched to breaking point in the Atlantic battle to secure Britain’s life-lines of food supplies.This is the true and astounding story of Convoy OG 71.

It is a horrifying account of appalling losses that was buried by the Admiralty in secret files. Only the men who were there could reveal the truth – and this is their story.British convoys regularly faced marauding surface raiders, planes and U-boat attacks. Convoy OG 71 was just another dangerous mission to Gibraltar until the enemy attacked with such exceptional and devastating results. This is the book that revealed in detail the report of this ghastly, sad mess.Nicholas Monsarrat, author of the huge bestseller The Cruel Sea, writes: ‘Whenever I think of the war, I don’t remember the happy things.

I  remember only this convoy. It is my particular nightmare.’The Sunday Times writes: ‘Lund writes a survivor’s story with a real feel for what it was like  to be there.’
