Product Description

Book Description

The bestselling novel from the master storyteller of the sea.

From the Back Cover

With the Allies poised for the invasion of Italy, the Germans hold a vital card: a floating dock, the only one in the Adriatic large enough to take a major warship.

Moored at a small port near Rimini, it is exposed, vulnerable. It must be destroyed before the Germans can tow it to a safer harbour.

Air, surface and conventional submarine attacks are out of the question. Only one team can do the job and still stand a chance of surviving - the crew of HM Midget Submarine XE 510.

Format: Paperback
Submarine warfare is always claustrophobic, but seldom moreso (I would imagine) than in a miniature sub, manned by only four men. This is the setting for Douglas Reeman's fourth book, as a special R.N. team is detailed into the Adriatic to destroy a Nazi floating drydock.
The pressures and tensions of undersea warfare make this book more of a psychological thriller than some of Reeman's other titles. Nevertheless, naval warfare is still Reeman's specialty, and this book doesn't lack for exciting scenes. This is an engrossing look at an area of naval conflict that is still too little explored.

Format: Paperback
From the title of this novel, it could be construed that this book is about the airforce. However as most of you avid Reeman readers will know, Mr Reeman produces high quality fiction on the Naval forces of primarily the British and German navys, although a series following the Royal Marines of the Blackwood family has also been created.
Dive In The Sun represents an in-sight to the crew of a small Midget Submarine XE51 during the invasion of the Italian Mainland. The submarine encounters difficulties during a mission in the Adriatic and the crew are forced to flee on foot . Their goal, to meet up with the advancing Allied army as it pushes northwards through Italy, using all their skill and cunning to avoid capture and execution as spies by the German army.

An excellent yarn by Douglas Reeman. A must read for those with an interest in WW2 naval stories.

I now have all the books in this series and recommend them to you all.
