C. S. Forester’s The Good Shepherd is a WWII suspense thriller that was acclaimed as one of the best novels of the year upon publication in 1955. It is the basis for the soon to be released motion picture, Greyhound, which was filmed in the Atlantic off the coast of Canada.
Forester’s central character is George Krause, an American destroyer commander in his mid-40s in command of a supply convoy with a four-ship escort. Krause is a professional sailor who has been at sea for thirteen years in a twenty-year career, and who is encountering naval combat for the first time. He’s a religious man, and his thinking is studded with biblical references, but the references are all highly descriptive of his situation and integral to his character. The mission of Commander George Krause of the United States Navy is to protect a convoy of thirty-seven merchant ships making their way across the icy North Atlantic from America to England. There, they will deliver desperately needed supplies, but only if they can make it through the wolfpack of German submarines that awaits and outnumbers them in the perilous seas. For forty-eight hours Krause will play a desperate cat-and-mouse game against the submarines, combating exhaustion, hunger, and thirst.
We currently have 27 C. S. Forester titles here at Faded Page including the Horatio Hornblower series, with more to come. We invite you to come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more public domain titles like these to Canada. Information about volunteering is available at our companion site, Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
