Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Mike Nicholson is operating out of Malta. Captaining the submarine Ursa, he's part of the fleet deputed to disrupt the flow of war supplies from Italian ports to Rommel's Afrika Korps.

Although Ursa is small, under armed and frustratingly slow, she succeeds, on her 17th Mediterranean cruise, in sinking a German tank-transporter.

That triumph puts Mike at the top of the league - he has now sunk more tonnage than any of his contemporaries. Promotion to Lieutenant-Commander, at the age of 28, is now on the cards. All he has to do is adhere to two rules: to stay alive and to keep his nose clean.

Awful not even a shadow of douglas Reeman

Not readable. Poor audio presentation, awkard pausing and phrasing. A wasted credit.

Had hoped for something akin to Douglas Reeman's excellent naval stories.

worse narrator really good narator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a really good narrator would possibly make it worth listening to, i couldn't finish the book as the narrator was so bad.

What will your next listen be?

i don't now yet, the above book might be ok with another narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

see above

What character would you cut from Submariner?

characters were not the problem

Any additional comments?

no
