A Flock of Ships

A gripping World War II thriller by Brian Callison. British navy ship Cyclops from the Liverpool yard along with its two escorts Mallard and Athenian are carrying valuable cargo and traversing the Atlantic Ocean on the way to Australia. Unknown to its officers, its wireless transmission and ranks has been infiltrated through subterfuge and spies. The story is told in the first person account by the First Mate whose handwritten log was found in a deserted alcove on the Cyclops in a dilapidated and broken down condition somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean along with its escort ship Athenian and two German U-boats. Its a thrilling, gripping saga written in the Alistair Maclean style using a lot of nautical lingo. Goodreads 5/5

It was apparently Brian Callison’s first book published in 1970 He has written other books mainly sea stories.
