Lieutenant Alec Paton was not a happy man when he was put in charge of a Royal Navy gun crew on an armed Dutch freighter skippered by Captain Paul Grootemann who seethed with bitter hatred for the Germans who had killed his son.
Neither had much respect for the other and when they were ordered to sail for Hong Kong, both felt they were in the wrong place fighting the wrong war.
But then they tangled with the Japanese and in the heat of the Pacific where cool heads and calm decisions were called for, no one on board the rusty old freighter was found wanting.
