HMS ULYSSES by Alistair MacLean

adapted for BBC Radio 4 by Nick McCarty

This is the story of a ship in time of war, the story of that most hazardous of all voyages in war – the perilous convoy to Russia through the Northern seas. This is, above all, the story of a gallant ship’s company of men driven to the limit of human endurance and beyond, battered by the elements, sought and fought by the enemy with grim resolution and every diabolical device. Alistair MacLean’s enduring bestseller produced for the first time on radio. Classic Play Series for BBC Radio 4, 14 June 1997.
