He paints a picture so rich you can almost taste and feel the salt on your face!
Overall, an excellent book which I heartily recommend for anyone who wants to read a quick paced, action novel about submarine warfare.
The author did a very good job of building the story to a pleasing climax, as well as creating a novel with depth.
Read this many years ago and liked it. Recently purchased a copy for a teenage nephew with an interest in WWII because this is an aspect of the war that can be overlooked.Published 1 month ago by E.V.Grant
On this classic I'm in the minority. The writing is of high quality and obviously authoritative; but this is mostly a cold sub hunt from training drills to the real thing. Read morePublished 5 months ago by J. Rodeck
This is a classic World War II submarine story. It reads as if it were written by an experienced submarine officer for the rather extraordinary reason that it was. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Bill
Still reads well after 50+ years... a great way for students of military history to connect back in time with the brave men who served in WWII.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
I had a hard time putting it down until I finished reading it, however, I was a captive audience because I served on a submarine 40 years ago.Published 8 months ago by Robert Kinney

Terrific, I had to remind myself I was reading historical fiction and not actual events. The utter mercilessness during war can be shocking. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Scott Walker
