    The author takes a rather biased approach to submarine operations, and to Operation Barney he seems to blindly support them and provides no historical context to back this opinion He also has a creepy obsession with the female companions provided to the captains of the various submarines.

    This is a reasonably well written book about submariners in World War II It suffered from the same malady as many popular World War II histories lack of historical analysis It s not so much that I begrudge the author for not providing a historian s eye, but it makes for less of a vivid story There were far too many discursions into letters home for my tastes As a straightforward rendition of World War II history, though, it does what I like the most and focuses on individual sailors expe This is a reasonably well written book about submariners in World War II It suffered from the same malady as many popular World War II histories lack of historical analysis It s not so much that I begrudge the author for not providing a historian s eye, but it makes for less of a vivid story There were far too m...
