I begin my fourth novel
My third book, The Wings of the Wind, is with my publisher for scrutiny. Whilst I await my fate, I have begun work on my fourth novel, about the Royal Navy's submarine flotilla in the Baltic. There, a squadron of nine submarines worked with the Russian Navy to disrupt the supply of Swedish iron ore to the Germans. The presence of such a potent force denied the Baltic to the German Navy as a sea training area.
The work of the submarine flotilla was severely hampered by the Russian Revolution in late 1917. My tale will tell not just the daring deeds of the submariners battling the ice and Germans, but the incredibly difficult situation they faced once Russia withdrew from the war and the Germans were able to occupy Estonia and Finland. It is a story of adventure, heroism, espionage, political intrigue and finally, murder.
