This is the story of the discovery of the U-boat U-869 off the eastern coast of the U.S. The main characters are John Chatterton and Richie Kohler.

The wreck was discovered in about 230 ft of water. Of interest are the technical aspects of the deep dives.

This book -The Last of the Blue Water Hunters- was truly inspiring. It begins by telling you a little bit about the past of the writer, and of the purpose of the mission he begins.

I loved this book. a short but very detailed history of the blue water hunter (spearfisherman) as told by Carlos and some of the originators of spearfishing in the U.S. this book also draws a very graphic (and often very sad)picture of the fishing industry which has pillaged many species from the ocean to the point of extinction. Overall, his recounting of the brave men who entered shark infested waters with nothing more than a speargun and a passion for a life on the seas was very exhilarating. ...more

Eyles writes a poetic and romantic account of spearfishing off of the Southern California coast. Reading this short book makes you want to grab your snorkel and mask and get out into the water ASAP. He narrates his diving with an ethereal voice that makes spearfishing a transcendent experience. I highly recommend this book to anybody interested in freediving and spearfishing.
