"The loss of the heavy cruiser HMS Edinburgh in the Barents Sea in May 1942 was one of the heaviest single blows in the long, thankless battering taken by the Royal Navy in escorting convoys to North Russia. Less than a fortnight later, another fine cruiser, the brand-new HMS Trinidad, went to the bottom in the same icy waters. [...] At the time of the Edinburgh's sinking [the author] was at Murmansk aboard the Trinidad, which had been torpedoed on her outward voyage and was in dry dock undergoing repair. Nearby were the camps where the sailors from Allied ships that had been sunk awaited passage home, a voyage that wasall too often ended by yet another torpedo. He describes the moment when t he Captain of the Edinburgh called the roll of her ship's company, a scene that moved men who had already been through hell and back as they realised from the silences which of their shipmates they would not see again." - from the dust jacket.
