4730 The Little Ships

Back Cover SummaryEdit

Think of Britain's fighting navy in the Second World War and you picture towering battleships, mammoth aircraft carriers, powerful cruisers, sleek destroyers. But alongside them are hosts of smaller craft without whose efforts the mighty fleets could not operate. They are "the little ships" - trawlers, drifters, coastal craft of all kinds. They served on the seas of the world, and this is the story of just two of them . . . of the ice cold courage of their crews.
