Nicholas Monsaratt -- Three Corvettes.


Lantern Swinger
As well as the Cruel Sea, try reading another of his books titled , 'Three Corvettes'.
His wartime biography, starts with him joining a Corvette as a new RNVR Sub Lt, finally ending up in command of one.

I read my dads old 1970's (ithink) copy of this book. I well recomend it to anyone interested in naval literature. Some very good craking lines that had me laughing my socks off.


Lantern Swinger
I can also highly recommend :

The Master Mariner


Darken Ship

He was writing the latter one when he died, so it is unfinished.

Both are historically excellent.
