CHOICE Review

During WW II, submarine service was among the most dangerous of all undertakings, irrespective of the country served. Captain Schratz provides the layperson with an interesting, exciting, and ultimately satisfying account of submarine service, both during WW II and the Korean War. His is a breezy style, chock full of illuminating anecdotes and insights from his service with occasional forays into strategic and overarching military concerns. These excursions are welcome, for the author often inundates the reader with detailed descriptions of submarines in general and his submarines in particular. He truly believes "Nothing equals the unforgettable romance of independent command." Schratz writes with humor, goodwill, but also with considerable reverence for those who have served under the sea, and readers interested in capturing the flavor of a proud and dangerous service will be rewarded by reading this volume. For general readers and public library patrons. -C. P. Potholm II, Bowdoin College
