During the Battle of the Atlantic, convoy HX-25, consisting of 37 Allied ships, is making its way to Liverpool. The convoy’s escort consists of the Fletcher-class destroyer USS Keeling DD-548, radio call sign “Greyhound”, captained by Commander Ernest Krause of the United States Navy; the British Tribal-class destroyer HMS James, call sign “Harry”; the Polish Grom-class destroyer ORP Viktor, call sign “Eagle”; and the Canadian Flower-class corvette, HMCS Dodge K136, call sign “Dicky”. Krause is overall commander of the escort ships, but despite his seniority and extensive naval education, it is his first wartime command.

The convoy enters the “Black Pit”, the Mid-Atlantic gap where they will be out of range of protective air cover. High-frequency direction finding from the convoy flagship intercepts several German transmissions, indicating the presence of U-boats. Greyhound identifies a surfaced sub heading towards the convoy and moves to attack. The submarine tries to slip under Greyhound, but Krause maneuvers his ship above the U-boat and sinks it with a full pattern of depth charges. The crew’s jubilation is cut short as they soon receive reports of distress rockets at the rear of the convoy. A Greek merchant ship was attacked by another U-boat and is quickly sinking.
