Publisher's Summary

The fifth book in the popular Crash Dive series!  

Charlie Harrison finally achieves his dream of commanding the Sandtiger, leading her able crew on a war patrol to the Philippines in September 1944. Along the way, he faces the challenges of command, a malfunctioning boat, and a patrol area that appears devoid of enemy ships.  

When a massive fleet materializes on the horizon, he identifies it as Admiral Halsey’s Third Fleet. America is invading the Philippines to cut off Japan from its colonial resources. The Japanese Combined Fleet responds, culminating in the Battle of Leyte Gulf and Charlie facing the ultimate test.

Captivating

In book five of the Crash Dive Series, Lt. Commander Charles Harrison takes command of the USS Sandtiger. In this story the action takes place in the battle of the Philippines in September of 1944.

The book is well written and researched. There is lots of action and suspense, but unlike the other four books in the series, this book reveals more crew interaction. I particularly enjoy the fact the books are only approximately five hours.

The book is four hours and twenty-three minutes. R. C. Bray does an excellent job narrating the book. Bray is an actor and multi-award-winning narrator.

A must read series for WWII submarine fans!

Captain Charlie Harrison realizes his dream although Murphy’s Law still applies. Charlie’s third tour starts out on the wrong foot with a series of mishaps and simple bad luck. The boys are off to the Philippines for perhaps one of the largest naval battles in history. The action and suspense continues as with the previous volumes. This is a very good series and a wonderful study of Captain Harrison as he confronts his own fears, discovers an understanding of love, and realizes his full potential as a leader. R.C. Bray excels as usual and improves an already great story. The series is a must read for WWII submarine fans.

Wonderful Book

It just seems like a true story versus a work of fiction. RC Bray as usual has done a excellent job reading the story. Buy it as you will like it.
