Riassunto: March 1942...Our submarines based on Malta are sinking so many of Field-Marshal Rommel's supplies that Berlin has ordered, 'Smash that flotilla, at all costs...' So now this small, distinguished 'band of soldiers', already fiercely embattled and suffering heavy losses as the price of their success, are to become the prime target on the Axis hit-list. Paul Everard, in HM Submarine ULTRA, is in the thick of the action - in what was, in fact, the most intensive submarine campaign ever fought. And simultaneously his half-brother Jack, commanding a special unit under the auspices of Mountbatten's Combined Operations, is about to sail from Falmouth for a virtually suicidal raid on an as-yet unnamed enemy port. In point of fact if Jack Everard does NOT return from this raid it could solve some problems, since he has become deeply involved with a girl to whom his father, Captain Sir Nicholas Everard, is unofficially engaged. A SHARE OF HONOUR is the finest novel to date by our premier sea novelist. In this compelling portrayal of the Everards in love and war, Alexander Fullerton once again combines family drama and authentic naval action, with magnificent effect.
L'autore: Alexander Fullerton was a cadet at Dartmouth at the age of thirteen and went to sea serving first in the battleship Queen Elizabeth in the Mediterranean. He wrote his first novel SURFACE! in the early 1950s and it sold over 500,000 copies. Then he worked on the 9-volume Nicholas Everard series that made his reputation.
