This review is from: One of Our Submarines (Wordsworth Military Library) (Paperback)
Edward Young was anxious to join a navigation class whilst at the R.N.V.R. training establishment. As a result he "volunteered" for duty in submarines. This book follows him from these early days in 1940 through to his position as a commander of a submarine. His adventures take him from the Arctic circle, and the freezing waters of the North Cape, to the Mediterranean and on to fight the Japanese from a base in Australia. A first hand account of life aboard a British submarine which includes many contemporary notes along with some photographs, maps and drawings which complement the text. A thoroughly enjoyable book.
