A Dawn Like Thunder




The bestselling novel from the master storyteller of the sea.

After four years, the tide of war is turning in North Africa and Europe.

The conflict in Southeast Asia, however, has reached new heights of savagery, and Operation Monsun poses a sinister threat to the hope of allied victory.

The Special Operations mission off the Burmese coast requires volunteers. Men with nothing to live for or men with everything to lose. Men like Lieutenant James Ross, awarded the Victoria Cross for his work in underwater sabotage, or the desperate amateur Charles Villiers, heir to a fortune now controlled by the Japanese.

The two-man torpedo - the chariot - is the ultimate weapon in a high-risk war. Cast loose into the shadows before an eastern dawn, the heroes or lunatics who guide it will strike terror into the heart of an invaluable enemy, or pay the ultimate price for failure...
