Blazing Ocean

(1979)
A novel by

 
'Gold braided bowler hats' was Captain Tuma"s phrase for the Admiralty. 'They think they own the seas,' he said. 'They don't; we do!' Even when the outbreak of war put his ship under the Navy's orders, Joe Turner was in command. Cunning and seamanship got the KENTUCKY MINSTREL out of Oran while the Royal Navy pounded the French fleet. Hastily armed, she sailed in convoy after convoy through the inferno of the submarine-haunted Atlantic, home to a bomb battered Liverpool. Captain Tumer and his crew had been ghting the sea all their ves; now they faced the added hazards of the U-boat wolf packs, the Luftwaffe's dive-bombers, and the shells of the surface raiders. Cyril Abraham, author of the popular TV series, The Onedin Line, served in the Merchant Navy, and his novel recreates all the hardship and the horror and the raw humour of the war at sea.
