This book is about Mourne merchant seamen and fishermen during the First World War. It is an account of their close encounters with German U-Boats & features stories about captains and crew from Kilkeel, Annalong, Killowen, Dundrum and Newry. Special reference is made to the sinking of the SS Kilcoan from Larne, SS Downshire from Dundrum, the Edith & Earnest schooners from Kilkeel, the county Down fishing boats and the SS Dundalk steamer from Dundalk. Members of seafaring families such as Maginnis, onnor, Doyle, Ferguson, McKee, O'Neill, Kerr and McKibbin are featured along with many others in the crew lists.
The author hopes that this book is a fitting tribute to the courage and tenacity of these men during the dawn of a new type of warfare.
