A Prayer for the Ship Book 1:Modern Naval Fiction Library

Small, quick-moving torpedo boats played a vital role in protecting the Allied convoys in the English Channel and the North Sea during World War II. The men of the British Motor Torpedo Boat squadrons tirelessly patrol the North Sea against Nazi detroyers, their lives dependent on speed and hair-trigger reactions. Sub-Lieutenant Clive Royce is newly assigned to MTB 1991, joining a crew already seasoned by death and fear. Now it is up to him to take the place of their dead first lieutenant and earn the respect of his captain and crewmates. As the massive firepower of Nazi Germany batters the fragile MTBs, Royce struggles for the courage and resourcefulness to face down a superior enemy and stay alive.
