What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

HMS Ulysses was based on MacLean's experiences in the Royal Navy during World War II. A critical success, this work was regarded in the same vein as Herman Wouk's 'The Cain Mutiny' and Nicholas Monsarrat's 'The Cruel Sea'. 

The Guns of Navarone is set during World War II on a fictitious Greek Island, Navarone. It is set during the Dodecanese Campaign, the Allies' campaign to capture the German held Greek islands in the Aegean in 1943.

Alistair Maclean was a Scottish novelist who wrote popular thrillers and adventure stories.

With the original unclipped dustwrappers. 

A very smart set of Alistair Maclean's early works.
