Each time Blake left his quarters he heard new voices, different dialects. and saw the lost expressions of men exploring fresh surroundings. It had been touching when the latest batch of old Andromedas had left the ship. They had gathered in an embarrassed, shuffling group while he had said a few words to them.

just want to add my two cents worth for a great book
Kerdana
Reeman as usual produces an excellent naval yarn. His usual boilerplate, but he does it well and is quite entertaining. The lives of the characters follow his other books, but his naval actions are enjoyable and exciting.
Sudert
I have read Reeman for years,but had missed this one!Even though I lived in UK.Well now I have read it,Hooray.
Andriodtargeted
Have been reading his stories for years. The paperbacks having been handed on years ago I'm glad to have them back again in Kindle form. Human and believable. Worth buying.
Uleran
Reeman continues his mastery of writing of war at sea. The plot is fast moving, the characters strong and the events are written a very believable fashion. The novel is fast paced and hard to put down.
Duktilar
Good,straight forward naval yarn. Worth picking up. If you have enjoyed Kent, Stockwin or Forrester you will find this a fast read in the same tradition.

I've had this boook in paperback for many years but that copy was falling apart. This book was a replacement copy. I love Douglas Reeman.
When Douglas Reeman began writing about the Royal Navy in WWII, he wrote some of the best action stories about the war. The novels featured one or two reasonably developed characters, a love interest and a supporting one-dimensional cast. However, he wrote fantastic action scenes and his depiction of naval life rang true. A Ship Must Die was written when Reeman was consistently delivering nail-biting tension and action. It is one of his best.
A Ship Must Die begins in Australia in January 1944. A German raider is stalking the shipping in the Indian Ocean. Since the Indian Ocean is a backwater, the resources to aggressively track it down are not provided. One battered cruiser, Andromeda, must postpone repairs and pursue the raider. Complications arise when it appears that there might be not one but two raiders on the prowl. One cruiser has already disappeared at the hands of the Germans. Can our heroes survive and defeat the enemy?
In typical Reeman fashion the novel builds to a tense climax with all on the line in a final battle. My only complaint is that the idea of even one German raider roaming the Indian Ocean in 1944 tested the willing suspension of disbelief. However, in A Ship Must Die it did seem more plausible than in The Iron Pirate where the Germans were out in the Atlantic in 1944.
A Ship Must Die ranks up there with HMS Saracen as one of Reeman's best WWII novels. He stuck to his formula and executed it well.
