4.0 out of 5 stars Submarine Stealth
A compelling read with subplots filled with action that combine to make a great story for those specifically interested in submarine technical aspects andwarfare.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good
The story is set in the 80s so not so technically advanced. The plot is a little fanciful as everything goes well for the Americans (as it always seems to do) and there is one incredible, outrageous piece of luck that saves the day but ignore that and it is a very readable tale.

A masterpiece with great tactical and physical detail. Clealy lovingly crafted from real-life experience to bring a story that is gripping and almost fully believable. A great mix of character based story at home, and tense moments of conflict at sea. I would recommend this to anyone interested in either Submarines or The Cold War.

The cover is confusing the reader.Action is prolonged and interupted by social activities.You would need to have served in the Submarine Service to follow the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK but untaxing yarn, 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silent Battleground (Kindle Edition)
The story is perfectly readable but a bit predictable. The good guys (the Americans) and the bad guys (the Russians) and the rights and wrongs are clearly and rather stereotypically defined and the outcome entirely predictable. The story is rescued by an author who clearly knows a bit about submarines and their operation and so (at least to this layman) the book appears realistic in its technical descriptions.

Basically though, a fairly enjoyable read but not an outstanding piece of naval fiction taken against the benchmark of the likes of Nicholas Monserrat.

I love the sea and submarines in particular, so I avidly grab any book on the subject, often to my disappointment, but not so with Mr Ulmer's offerings, they race on through the story taking you on a journey that never fails to satisfy.

Good read and holds your attention for most of the book. Technical knowledge is good which makes the story credible.
