From a British author known for “superb” action sequences, a WWII navel thriller set during the Battle of the Java Sea between Allied and Japanese navies (The Observer).
1942. As Japanese invasion fleets sweep across the Pacific, a handful of Allied ships prepare for a last-ditch battle at Surabaya in the Java Sea. Not only are the Allied forces doomed to defeat: any surviving ships will be trapped, since escape routes are blocked by the enemy.
Nick Everard, commanding the cruiser Defiant, is badly wounded in the battle. His ship is heavily damaged and to make matters worse, he has a battered US destroyer under his protection. But unless Everard can find some way out of the trap, both ships and crews face destruction . . .
All the Drowning Seas presents compelling action at sea, and establishes Alexander Fullerton as one of the premier novelists of naval warfare.
