"Eternal Patrol" is a tapestry woven with threads of adventure, intrigue, murder, World War II history, science, science fiction, and suspense. And just when I thought I knew the direction in which the story was going - ZIP went the rug from under my feet.
Because of this book, I have a greatly increased respect for submariners and the dangers they face - particularly during times of war. I was invited on board an "Aussie" submarine for a brief tour during the 80's, and Mr. Wallace brought back the sights, sounds and feelings I remember from that visit - minus the "pings" and their aftermath!!
Sometimes, a particular sentence in a book stands out for me. And it may be of significance to me alone. The following is such a sentence: "When you know for sure that you're going to die, there's nothing left to fear."
This books is a "keeper," for certain. And I may well order the paperback edition - just in case a passing meteor knocks out my Kindle.
Let me start by saying that... there are a few holes here, which are typical of a time travel story. For one thing, although the Nazi's (and others) seem to have figured out that the time travel thing is going to occur, it's never explained _how_. It seems to involve a large comet...
Throughout the story you get occasional data points that get you going, "hang on a minute..." - this isn't the history I remember. This is eventually explained, and assorted double crosses revealed, and everything eventually works itself out. There are several twists - a few you'll likely see coming.
