Across The Narrow Sea

By James Pattinson

Ready for the final assault…

A vast armada was assembled for the D-Day invasion.

Among them was a small coaster, the S.S. Radgate, her holds loaded with high-explosive shells and small arms ammunition…

The crew aboard the Radgate, a crew varied in age and experience, share the same fears: fear of death, fear of their own behaviour under fire, fear of not returning to their loved ones.

In charge of her guns was Sergeant Peter Mason of the Maritime Royal Artillery.

Mason, raised for a life of farming, is a long way from home and a long way from his betrothed, Clare.

It is through his eyes that we see the blood, agony, and confusion of D-Day, and London under the flying bombs.

Against the tension of this ever-present threat comes a grim, realistic story of war, lightened by touches of tenderness and beauty.

Across the Narrow Seas is a gripping naval thriller that brings D-Day to live in vivid detail.
