"Germany faces final defeat in 1944. Across 5,000 miles of wild Atlantic dominated by Allied navies, twenty-two men and five nuns aboard the barquentine 'Deutschland' are battling home to Kiel ... A U-boat ace captured captured in a desperate raid on Falmouth; an American girl doctor caught in the nightmare of the Flying Bombs; a gunboat commander who's fought from the Solomons to the Channel; a rear admiral who itches to get back into action: Allies and enemies, men and women, the hunters and the hunted [are] drawn inexorably into the eye of the storm." *** "The members of a German crew find themselves at the mercy of fierce storms and the British navy when they attempt to cross the Atlantic in a nineteenth-century sailing vessel in the midst of World War II."
