The author repeats himself a lot and explains CG and CL incessantly. The contents are interesting and honest, there is no hype or Bull. I enjoyed the read because of its honesty the author comes across with a lot of integrity.

good technically but the narrative could have been a little more elaborate on the Navy politics that prevailed at this fast enacting time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Affordable and practical, 12 Jan 2012
Used constantly and have held up well (12 months), give great support in all exercises that require the wrist to be in the supine position, ie Bench press sholder press etc, survive the washing machine when they get smelly and they will if you train seriously and dont just fanny around only worry is the thumb elastic loop it looks a bit fragile but has survived up to now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid British story of tradition, bravery simply told, 12 Jan 2012
No over stated Bull**** a great British story simply told that relays the reality of submarine warfare and indeed warfare in general,long long periods of utter boredom and routine interspersed with short period of absolute terror which in this case brings out the finest traditions of the Royal Navy dating back to Cochrane and Nelson. A great addition to any collection.
