"Weatherly makes it possible to hear the crash of the guns and the rending of steel as a missile hits. Readers don’t have to understand everything the author supplies to realize how much must go right for a ship to survive rather than sink. That’s why his books work."

"Another fascinating tour de force of naval warfare by the author and a fitting sequel to his first. His seamless blending of historical fact and fiction brings alive the maritime engagements of World War II so vividly that it almost makes us seafarers want to get on to a plotting sheet and recreate the maneuvers of the gripping Fleet actions. G. Wm Weatherly has indeed emerged as the foremost author of authentic naval action and on par with some of the best before him."
