it was ok

If old Offley stuck with the story of the convoy vessels and the true tales of their encounters with the U-boat "wolf packs" of World War II along with some insight into the logistics of the North Atlantic crossings that supplied Britain and later the Americans on the European Continent, this would be a four star winner, as well a 150 pages shorter. The tedious recitation of detail, however, such as the tonnage of each vessel (also to be found in appendices) and the cargo of each gets, well, tedious - and interrupts the action.
