New Print Edition

McBooks Press will publish a new trade paperback edition of Douglas Reeman's Killing Ground in April 2014. 1942. In the Western Ocean, at the height of battle and from the bridge of his much-loved destroyer HMS Gladiator, Lieutenant-Commander David Howard's orders were chillingly clear. There could be no mercy. To the men who fought to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, the Battle of the Atlantic was full-scale war. It was a relentless, savage war against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea—in an arena known only to its embittered survivors as the killing ground. HMS Gladiator was part of that war. An ordinary, hard-worked destroyer and her company of men fighting for survival in a war with no rules.
