Fighting the U-Boats in the battle of the Atlantic - one of the finest accounts of war at sea ever written.
In 1926 Donald Macintyre was commissioned as a Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Navy. Soon afterwards he joined the Fleet Air Arm and became a fighter pilot. In 1935 he was appointed as commander of the Kingfisher, the first of a new class of anti-submarine ships. Through the Second World War he served as the commander of destroyers, becoming the Royal Navy's ace U-Boat Killer. For his exploits he was awarded three DSOs and a DSC.
