Good Story, shame about the “dust cover”

It’s a good story, typical Douglas Reeman. It’s just a shame the “dust cover” shows a 20th century nuclear submarine and not a Second World War U boat!

Great Book.

David Rintoul is a master of the genre and Douglas Reeman can't be bettered. From the Artic Convoys to The Med his story's cover everything from Cruisers to Submarine to Tug Boats. Great escapism and story telling.

Brilliant

Another classic from Reeman. Another reminder of those days when bravery was understated and commonplace.

British submariners wreak havoc in capture U boat

Good WW2 story of submarine exploits. Interesting tech stuff. The love angle more than somewhat unlikely.
