    Sommaire:

    Soon to a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks premiering May 8, a World War II naval thriller of "high and glittering excitement" (The New York Times) from the author of the legendary Hornblower series The mission of Commander George Krause of the United States Navy is to protect a convoy of thirty-seven merchant ships making their way across the icy North Atlantic from America to England. There, they will deliver desperately needed supplies, but only if they can make it through the wolfpack of German submarines that awaits and outnumbers them in the perilous seas. For forty eight hours, Krause will play a desperate cat and mouse game against the submarines, combating exhaustion, hunger, and thirst to protect fifty million dollars' worth of cargo and the lives of three thousand men. Originally published as The Good Shepherd and acclaimed as one of the best novels of the year in 1955, here is a riveting classic of World War II and naval warfare from one of the twentieth century's masters of sea stories.
