4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating submariner's memoir, 9 July 2009
This review is from: One of Our Submarines (Pen & Sword Military Classics) (Paperback)
The memoirs of a submarine officer from his initial training in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve to his tour as a captain in the Malacca Straits in 1944. Unlike other better known theatres of war, the world of the submariners' has been shrouded. This book brings the silent service to life. First written in 1952, this 2004 re-print is still one of the few first-hand experiences of World War 2 submariners'. As such, it is still on the list of essential reading for young officers' joining the Royal Navy's officer training college at Dartmouth.
Written in a clear and light-hearted prose, it will entertain and illuminate the reader. World War 2 submarines appear to be primitive today but this book reveals the complex technical machinery it truly is. Readers will also pause at the number of the authour's colleague who make the ultimate sacrifice.
