Though the admiral has an interesting story to tell, the writing is contrived and corny, stiff. He should have considered a ghost writer.
Two books that describe the life of a sub captain during WWII that are way more engrossing:
1. The Bravest Man: The Story of Richard O'Kane & U.S. Submariners in the Pacific War by William Tuohy
2. Silent Running: My Years on a World War II Attack Submarine by James F. Calvert
Either of those books are worth multiple listenings, I could barely make it through 'Thunder Below!'.
The stilted writing made it very hard to get through.
