Run Silent Run Deep is a great classic WW2 submarine novel, wrote by the late Captain beech who fought the Japanese from various subs, commanded a WW2 sub, an oilier, skipper of the Titan ( a huge, duel nuclear reactor sub), set a record around the world submerged in the Titan and was a Naval aid to President Eisenhower. Beach was highly decorated with medals of valor. Beach was a man who knew submarines and used his detailed experiences and knowledge to write a fast paced action WW2 submarine novel. No boring parts. I read the book in two days and had difficulty putting it down. The characters Lt. Commander Richardson, XO Jim Bledsoe, third officer Keith, Captain Blunt and others are superbly shown in this great book.
We see the heroism attacking and destroying the Japanese destroyer skippered by the infamous Japanese Captain "Bungo Peat". This Captain was an expert at seeking out and destroying US subs attacking convoys he helped protect. Skipper Lt Commander Richardson and crew on the US sub Eel finally sink the destroyer and Captain "Bungo Peat". Lots more action but I won't ruin the book for you.
I also bought the DVD Run Silent Run Deep staring Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster. The ending was different than the book. 5 star DVD. Buy the book first than view the DVD. Both great!
Even though this is a novel of fiction , the reader is drawn into the novel with life like characters and submarine detail. A first rate book. Anyone who served in the Navy or has an interest in WW2 diesel "boats" subs will love this book. Rated 5 stars.
