Description:

During World War II, the 10,000 sailors who sailed the Royal Navy's arctic convoys offered a lifeline to Russia during its life-or-death struggle with Nazi Germany, and won one of the least-appreciated major victories of the War. The journey from the extreme North-West of Scotland to Russia's arctic coast involved facing unimaginable dangers at sea and more toil when they finally made port. This tells the story of the men of these convoys and about life aboard these ships, drawing extensively on diaries, letters, reports and many unpublished archive sources.
