bookshelves: historical-fiction

In fairness, I received an advanced copy from St. Martin's Press probably based on the fact that I have read everything P. T. Deutermann has written. Yes, he is one of my favorite authors. Now for the review:

This is the fifth historical novel he has written about naval efforts in the Pacific during World War II. While each is distinct and different, each has the same theme, Leadership. Iceman is no exception. It is the story of a submarine Captain fighting the Japanese, the Naval bureaucracy, and his own demons. All of this is woven into the story of a submarine's exploits. In short, a naval thriller. While not a submariner, I did spend 25 years in the Navy, and he gets it right. That is not always true of naval adventures.
