LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Hutchinson of Australia. 1970. When Lieutenant-Commander Rex Standish joins the frigate HMS 'Terrapin' as executive officer he imagines he can see in her the final collapse of his life and hopes. In her early days the 'Terrapin' had been part of a crack hunter - killer group in the Battle of the Atlantic, but a quarter of a century later she is ready for the breaker's yard. Then, unheralded and unknown, Commander Hector Dalziel arrives to become the Terrapin's last captain. To begin with, his drive and fanatical pride in the ship are treated with amusement or contempt but in the Gulf of Thailand Dalziel's old-style patriotism, his conviction that the undeclared war between East and West is nearing a new flashpoint, soon bring the reality of near disaster. Fine condition. Illustrated dust jacket over black cloth covered end boards. 321 pp. 222 x 140 mm
