Graham Mcglone about this book: It is 1998, and trouble is again beginning in the Middle East. With a madman in the Kremlin, and a gunge-ho lunatic in the White House, they begin a period of nuclear brinkmanship. In Libya, Colonel Gaddafi is instigating mayhem. As nuclear war is looming, Captain Michael Stephens escapes from England with his family and friends aboard an aged wooden ship called Polaris. As the northern hemisphere becomes embroiled in the nuclear holocaust, the Polaris heads out to the remote islands of the North Atlantic Ocean. As red hot ash-clouds are swirling across Europe, she must battle against storms and steam vast distances to outrun the radio-active dust that is moving inexorably southwards.
Can they make it? This is the story of their fight for survival in the face of man's inhumanity to man, of heroes and villains, and of Polaris - the heroine. Full to the brim with high seas adventure and political intrigue.
