January 1942, and the crew of MGB194 return from leave to find their gunboat allocated to a different flotilla. And new men have joined; fresh faces who must earn the title of shipmate, while some may not be all they seem…
But the action is hotting up off the South Coast of England; all too soon they meet with the enemy in the worst of circumstances while a later secondment involves them in one of the most audacious raids in history.
With captivating historical detail, tense naval action and gripping personnel dynamics, Bond gives an insight into British Coastal Forces during WW2; its light, powerful, but ultimately vulnerable craft, and the men that sailed them: the Glory Boys.
