4.0 out of 5 stars view from below, March 20, 2006
I have read all of Clancy, Buff, Robinson and DeMercurio. Each has his own background and style. Buff and DeMercurio, like Jeff Edwards, are ex US Navy and they served in Submarines. As an ex enlisted Submariner I particularly appreciated Mr. Edwards including and acknowledging the existence of and contributions of the crew and not just the Officers. His exposure of the sometimes "dogmatic" approach to dealing with combat situations is far to real and troubling. His understanding of the "real politic" of governments and their leaders is spot on and a bit scary. While I might quibble with the claim that in a one on one situation the surface vessel has a two out of five chance of winning the battle, he takes great care to help the reader understand the reality of antisubmarine warfare from the surface combatent's point of view. This book is really worth reading.
