Format: Hardcover
When I bought this I was expecting a rehash of The Admiralty Regrets but how wrong could be. This book deals with many of the unanswered questioins I had plus some I had never thought about. It was a good "read" too. Some repetition with the earlier books is inevitable but this by no means detracts.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Greco Francesco on 29 Oct 2009
Format: Hardcover
A really good read, but one that fills you with horror with what the 99 men must have endured, and what the families must have endured for years afterwards. This books brings you up to date with what really happened and tells us what rumours were going around afterwards. Even today, the full storey is not revealed and probably will never be but Tony Booth has done a first rate job of telling us the facts. I certainly recommend this.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. N. Horne on 22 Dec 2008
Format: Hardcover
Thetis Down is an excellent read. The subject matter is political dynamite and surely cries out for a MAJOR feature film to be made of the story. The author relates the events of the time in an original fashion and brings a whole new dimension to an event that the British Government would rather see dead and buried. The writer of the foreword, Len Deighton, compliments the author for his 'painstaking level of research' and ability to transpose the 'nail-biting narrative' into a 'first rate suspense story'. High praise indeed. I wholly concur.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. DL Griffiths on 1 Aug 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A first class read for anyone interested in maritime disasters. The memorial to those who were lost in the disaster is in my home town of Holyhead. The book is highly detailed and has many pictures that have not been published before. Ranks highly against the original book on the subject "The Admiralty Regrets"
An excellent book.
