I watched this film a while back and knowing the book was written by C. S. Forester of most excellent Hornblower fame, I have had this on my to read pile for too long. It’s so good. Just like the film, I was caught up in the tension of the piece, and even though I didn’t understand all of the intricate, well-researched details, you can’t help but be swept up in the misery and cold, the state of high alert, the danger. It’s so well done, and although there’s not a lot of room for character development, it’s still a really good story.
