The story begins with a dramatisation of the Italian torpedo raid on Alexandria in 1941, in which two British battleships were severely damaged. The British are worried that this new tactic will give the Italians naval supremacy in the Mediterranean, with the primary target for the Italians being the Royal Navy base at Gibraltar. To counter this threat, bomb disposal expert Lionel Crabb is posted to Gibraltar. He creates a team of divers to intercept the Italian attacks and defuse the bombs. Meanwhile, from Algeciras in neutral Spain, an Italian expert on underwater operations, Antonio Tomolino, is secretly watching the British base in Gibraltar and planning new attacks.
