Editorial Reviews

Review

“Peffer ably conveys the lures and danger of the sport of deep-wreck diving…[and] tempers the excitement of coming upon a “virgin wreck” with the dreaded responsibility of learning what happened to the lost crewmen…A nicely handled work that moves back and forth between the two narratives and provides suspense and also a sense of compassion for the victims.”—Kirkus Reviews

“In this well-told tale of real adventure at sea, Peffer…deftly combines WWII military history with an exciting account of a group of deep wreck divers searching for one of the most elusive and sought-after prizes: the sunken remains of the German submarine U-550…[A] true story of bravery [and] compassion.”—
Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great WWII Book about the Last UBoat Found off the East Coast of America.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 15, 2017
As the son of one of the U550 Survivors, I think the book's author did an excellent job telling the story of the Battle that took place 120 miles off Montauk, Long Island and then tied in the story of the NJ Dive Team that found the U550 over 70 later. I was lucky enough to go with my Dad to his U550 reunions in Germany a few times and then last July I was able to go with the Dive Team out to both wrecks and lay a Memorial Wreath for All Those Young Sailors Who Perished! If you like to read history and adventure books I definitely recommend buying this book. It goes well with a glass of scotch or a cup of coffee!
