4.0 out of 5 stars The Bravest Man
Strange book, this one.......having previously read "Clear the Bridge" Richard O'Kane's own account of his war on Wahoo & Tang, I found myself experiencing a kind of deja vu. Not just in sentences but in whole chapters. Yes, I appreciate that if one tells the same story,accurately recounting the facts & using the same source materials, there's bound to be an awful lot of...

Strange book, this one.......having previously read "Clear the Bridge" Richard O'Kane's own account of his war on Wahoo & Tang, I found myself experiencing a kind of deja vu. Not just in sentences but in whole chapters. Yes, I appreciate that if one tells the same story,accurately recounting the facts & using the same source materials, there's bound to be an awful lot of simlarities, but this book is so similar I wondered why Mr Tuohy (Pulitzer Prize winning author & all) even bothered. Richard O'Kane did such a good job telling his own story that any other book was bound to look & feel like a poor copy and thats exactly how this one reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely terrific book, 30 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bravest Man (Hardcover)
Take a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist at the top of his game, give him a story like this one --- the drama, heartbreak and triumphs of a World War II submarine on patrol in the Pacific --- and the result is an absolutely terrific book. Bill Tuohy and Richard O'Kane, skipper of "The Tang" --- a combination of master storyteller and war hero --- prove that non-fiction doesn't get better than this! JEFFREY ROBINSON

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 30 Aug 2013

This review is from: The Bravest Man: Richard O'Kane and the Amazing Submarine Adventures of the USS Tang (Kindle Edition)
Don't usually bother to write reviews but felt compelled after completing this book.
Always been interested in WW2 submarine warfare and after reading Iron Coffins by Herbert Warner (itself an amazing book) I wanted an Allied perspective.
Very well written, compelling and informative I would highly recommend this to anyone with even a fleeting interest in WW2,subs or naval warfare.
