5.0 out of 5 stars Tally- ho Life and War in a submarine., 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hunting Submarine: The Fighting Life of HMS Tally-Ho (Kindle Edition)
This is a stirring tale of the united determination of the Captain and ship's {or boat's) company to prosecute their warfare in an often overlooked theatre. The technical aspects of operating a submarine are presented in a readable and enlightening way and point to the endless adaptability and competence of all involved and the understated courage of every man onboard during the repeated patrols in hostile waters. The less formal atmosphere than would be expected in a surface vessel is amply portrayed and yet the exceptional espirit de corps generated within the team that cannot afford any passengers generates its own overwhelmingly powerful discipline. The resulting and famed "can-do"spirit is amply demonstrated by the flexibility they demonstrate in using their limited resources, particularly living space, to support the clandestine operations of the Army.
This book is a fine, well-written tribute to an outstanding "Boat" and a Captain and crew that served in her.
