Robert Radcliffe lives in Suffolk and is an experienced pilot. He has written two other novels, published under a different name.
'UPON DARK WATERS is an honest and moving account of the realities of war and one man's attempts to come to terms with his past and shape his future. The actions moves swiftly between the beautifully wild pampas and the terror of the Atlantic battle, the contrast between these two serving to emphasise the brutality and uncertainty of life during war.' WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY 'An absolute gem.' NEW BOOKS MAGAZINE 'Radcliffe presents life on a ship in all its freezing, soaking glory in this terrific mix of adventure and saga.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'Radcliffe's action scenes are executed with his customary brio, and the unusual setting makes for a fascinating read.' MAIL ON SUNDAY 'Definitely one of my ten out of ten scores for reads this year and deserves to be a bestseler.' HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW
