Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was hoping this book would throw up a lot of new facts on this episode in the K class submarine history. It says it makes use of historical records released in 1994. What I found was a book that was padded out with lots of scene setting, poor reproductions of photographs and no clear diagrams of what happened. Whilst there are new facts on the naval investigation and subsequent court martial, it doesn't give a very balanced assessment of the actions by the people involved. I was also very surprised that there is no reference to an earlier book (The K Boats by Don Everitt) which gives a very good account of the facts with some clear diagrams of the incident.

First off,as far as I am aware we are not related.This book,unlike Don Everitts" book "The K Boats" which deals with the history of this awfull craft specifically deals with the tragic events at May Island during an exercise.Although this book stands alone,Don Everitts book gives an idea of the foibles of this craft.It is interesting to have a book that deals specifically with this catastrophe as a separate episode in the history of the K Boats and well worth reading for anyone remotely interested in this type of craft.

Very well researched and well set out in a clear and lucid manner

Shows the Royal Navy of the Great War, in an unprofessional moment
