WWII: Cameron, now in command of the destroyer Caithness, is being deployed from Trincomalee, Ceylon to the Indian Ocean's Bay of Bengal on a reconnaissance mission to gauge Japanese naval strength in the region. After enduring a typhoon in the Indian Ocean, the Caithness rescues a Japanese merchant seaman from a half-swamped lifeboat and learns that a Japanese convoy is heading north to Japanese-occupied Burma from Malaya.
Cameron discovers that one of the merchant ships in the convoy is transporting British Prisoners of War to Burma, but how can he rescue them without sinking the troopships?
