it was amazing

No one tells a naval action story like P.T. Deutermann in my opinion. Of course he is a Naval Academy graduate and served 26 years in the U.S. Navy; that may have something to do with it. Beyond that though, he is a wordsmith with a great writing style. He makes the reader a member of his ship's crew and you actually live the story. This is a submarine story and begins with a bit of live history which introduces us to our hero, Commander/Captain Malachi Stormes, serving in the
Atlantic fleet during 1942. Soon, though, he is transferred to the Pacific fleet operating out of Freemantle/Perth Australia which plays a key role in supporting our Marines in the Solomon Islands and, in fact, defending Australia from a possible Japanese invasion. He is given command of the USS Firefish and his crew is astonished at his aggressive tactics which are diametrically opposed to
those of their previous skipper. This is a high octane, take no prisoners and come home with no torpedoes tale. Buckle up and hang on. I loved it.
