Back Cover SummaryEdit

4760 vultures over malta

When Sir Francis Drake sailed into Cadiz harbour and attacked the Spanish fleet they said he had singed the King of Spain's beard.

Now meet Nick Corrigan, who sailed into an enemy-held harbour and burned the black whiskers off Hitler's face . . . and all he had to do it with was the "Nelly" a rusty old minesweeper.

At least that's what she looked like. Pound for pound, though, this vicious little tub was the most heavily armed ship in the Royal Navy.
