The Coal Scuttle Brigade, by A McKee

The Coal Scuttle Brigade
Alexander McKee

Twice every seven days the convoys of slow, rugged colliers passed through the most bitterly contested waterway of the war. Attack was certain.: from the French coast, heavy shore batteries would open up; Stukkas would stalk them, streaming down from above the cliffs; on the edge of the swept Channel, E-boats would lie in ambush and in a few seconds the night would erupt into a chaos of gunfire, tracers and torpedo explosions. This is a magnificent, true story of those heroic convoys of ships which formed the Coal Scuttle Brigade.
