    One thought on “Three Corvettes”

    1. Nicholas Monsarrat is best known as the author of "The Cruel Sea", which I haven't read but which was made into a top quality 1953 British film. This collection also derives from the author's time as a naval officer in WWII, and contains both fiction and non-fiction pieces.The memoir "Three Corvettes" forms the bulk of the collection, and relates the author's experiences on the eponymous vessels from 1940-43. On starting I was struck by its unusual style. Other characters are never mentioned by [...]

    2. Nicholas Monsarrat is one of the best writers on sea warfare during World War II. Originally published as ‘Monsarrat at Sea’, this collection contains all his short stories about the sea: ‘HM Corvette’, ‘East Coast Corvette’, ‘Corvette Command’ (all publ. during the war), ‘It Was Cruel’, ’A Ship to Remember’ (about the sinking of the Lancastria in 1940 in which 3,000 men lost their lives), ‘I Was There’, ‘HMS Marlborough Will Enter Harbour’, and ‘The Ship That D [...]

    3. The author creates a marvellous setting in World War 2 about the small corvettes that assisted convoys to cross the Atlantic. The detail, the tensions, the drama and the boredom provide a very satisfying insight into navy operations in very trying circumstances.

    4. This book is partially autobiographical with a few fiction short stories added. The autobiographical chapters were interesting but not enthralling. However he comes into its own when writing fiction. Here he is excellent. Recommended.
