    Story
    "A French Navy historical novel of WW II"

    A genre rarely seen about foreign forces in WW II done in english. Uniquely, it is set on a rare, large submarine out in the colonies of the French Empire as Paris fell & some french continued to fight on.

    Story
    "I love this guys work"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Strike from the Sea to be better than the print version?

    About the Same I've listen to Strike form the Sea and have read it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Captain of the Sub. He's like most of Mister Reeman's main character's haunted by war, but understands he has a job to do.


    Have you listened to any of David Rintoul’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He read all of Mister Reeman's books he's one of the best.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You shouldn't have joined if you can't take a Joke. (From another Book)


    Any additional comments?

    This is not my favorite Douglas Reeman book. My fav is Sunset it's set in Hong Kong weeks before and after WWII in the Pacific starts. Strike From the Sea is one three books set in the Pacific before during and after the Japanese attack. He catches the arrogance, the wishful thinking, the slow dawning that a way of life is coming to an end as the Japanese advance. One is set in Hong Kong the other two are set in Singapore, any WWII buff will know what train wreck that was. His other WWII books are set in the Atlantic and the Med and show the cold, grim, dirty horror of the killing grounds of the North Atlantic, Atlantic, and sunny killing grounds of The Med. Give him a try.

    Story
    "silent but not finished"
    If you could sum up Strike from the Sea in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, exciting, incomplete


    Did David Rintoul do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes, the chracters are a distinct bunch , no two alike,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    to be continued


    Any additional comments?

    just seemed to wrap it up in the end to finish the story in time.
