really liked it
bookshelves: wwii, alex-kershaw
Read in March, 2009

He has written 2 of my favorite books with The Longest Winter and The Bedford Boys. This wasn't up there compared to those two, but it was better then The Few.

I liked the book and it was realy interesting learning about the submarine exit and the quotes and detail description of everything. The main people involved had a good background for them for the most part. It was a little bare in some areas though. I think the only issue I had was that it was only 217 pages in the hardcover. It just wasn't enough for me. I wish there was more to the story either the events leading up to it, during it or about their post lives. He touched upon it and so forth, but there wasn't enough pages involved. Don't get me wrong the 217 pages he wrote were solid, I guess I was just hoping for more.

Overall good book and recommend.
