The book itself both benefitted and suffered from the author's personal association with its subject. Benefitted because he brought some insights probably available from few others. Suffered because it lacked some of the detachment of a historian. I particularly disliked the unnecessary recreation of descriptive scenes for which there were no surviving witnesses, which drifted perilously close to "faction".
For those with a specific interest in two particular ships, this may be a good book but, for those interested in US Q-ships, it falls well short of the more general history the title implies.
I knew my Mother's Father, Guy Brown Ray, was an officer aboard the Asterion but little else until Mr. Beyer's book.
Mr. Beyer -- THANK YOU!!!
