The cruel sea is nothing less than a classic. Through the prism of war the author portraits universal characters with wisdom, sympathy and love, while at the same time regaling us with English wit at its finest, understated, subtle and full of common sense. This book brought me to tears more times than I wish to confess. As with the previous commentator, I felt a loss when the book was over.

A book of subtle and overt emotional impact. I wished it would not end, the joy of reading it being so great.
