Back Cover SummaryEdit

H.M.S. Samson was Lieutenant-Commander Roland Bream's destroyer - small, fast and deadly, the pride of her crew and a credit to the Royal Navy. But when she crossed the path of a Japanese Yamato-class battleship she had to turn tail and flee, not through cowardice but through sheer self-preservation. For her Japanese opponent was one of the world's largest battleships - one shell from her 18-inch guns could blow the Samson out of the water. Yet as the destroyer ran before her colossal opponent, Bream was racking his brains for an opportunity to hit back - even although it seemed pure suicide!
