Robert Kurson has found and told an incredible story that anyone who likes non-fiction will enjoy.
He gives a great background into diving, German U-boats, WWII and more.

The American Sniper
Mr Scott was excellent, specifically when reading about the emotional turmoil the divers were experiencing. His voice was such a pleasure to listen to that I will want to read anything else that he has read.
the emotional aspect portrayed by this writer was brilliant.
As a fellow diver of over 30 years of diving experience, I must say I felt like I was there at the U boat wreck! Would love to see more books like this one for us the divers!!
I loved the technical aspects of the diving, and how someone gets into trouble diving. I'm a avid diver, but the sub's history and mystery were intriguing and kept me riveted.
I could not stop listening to this one. The characters were well read and the story is rock solid. Makes me wonder what else is on the bottom of the oceans.
If you are not sure if audiobooks are for you, start with this one. Simply amazing.
This book is awesome. If you are not a scuba diver, you will be love this story. If you are a scuba diver, you will listen in awe. If you have ever done a wreck dive and penetrated a shipwreck, you will have the best time picturing what these guys did in your mind's eye. This is a must listen for anyone interested in WWII history and/or scuba diving. The interview, at the end of the book, with the subjects is great too!
