  • HMS Ulysses was the debut novel by Scottish author Alistair MacLean. Originally published in 1955, it was also released by Fontana Books in 1960. MacLean’s experiences in the Royal Navy during World War II provided the background and the ill-fated PQ-17 convoy to Murmansk provided the basis for the story, which was written at a publisher's request after he'd won a short story competition the previous year. Some editions carry a prefatory note disavowing any connection between the fictional HMS Ulysses and the U-class destroyer of the same name. Wikipedia
