Rezensionen
"An eye-level view of mortal danger set against a major inflection point during World War II. . . . Operation Pedestal is the story of desperate warriors shepherding a frail cargo through all the fire and steel their enemy can hurl. Mr. Hastings paints a portrait of naval combat with an artist's brush guided by more than a half-century of combat reportage. Compassionate toward men who braved bombs, torpedoes, fire and a cruel sea, he showcases the Royal Navy-along with the merchant vessels it guarded-at its finest hour." Wall Street Journal
