    MOBI The War Below Kindle ´ The War ePUB Ë ☆ motorrad 100.de ☆ below download, The War kindle, The War Below PDF/EPUBHas some grammatical errors I'm surprised Simon and Shuster's editors didn't catch the errors The story is about three subs I wish the author had written all three as independent sub stories Instead he intertwined the three going back and forth to each other which caused confusion He starts and ends his book with clear dates as to month and year In the chapters in between he mentions month and rarely mentions year that didn't help chronological flowI'm an ex sailor and I know many nautical terms This author referenced terms I don't know I wish he'd taken the time to define what they all meant Although I was not a s

    MOBI The War Below Kindle ´ The War ePUB Ë ☆ motorrad 100.de ☆ below download, The War kindle, The War Below PDF/EPUBA good book on the submarine war in the Pacific during WWII It follows the Silverside Drum and Tang on its mission and gives a good overview of their missions and crew It also follows the surviving members of the Tang through their horrible ordeal as POWs of the Japanese A book worth reading My only complaint would be at times the author went on asides that had little or nothing to do with the submarine war I didn't need to hear the story of the Midway Guadalcanal or the airwar since there was little or no sub involvement besides this and the sometimes repetitive nature of some of the stories it was a good book

    MOBI The War Below Kindle ´ The War ePUB Ë ☆ motorrad 100.de ☆ below download, The War kindle, The War Below PDF/EPUBServing on a submarine had to be a very dangerous and frustrating line of duty This book is interesting but certain parts of the book the author could have done away with This book focuses on three WWII submarines used in warfare against Japan Written in a casual narrative style with each submarines exploits were spread over a number of chapters This is not rehashing of material from Wikipedia This is based on talking to the last of the WWII survivors of those submarines and poring over endless naval records What you get is engaging and times gripping account of submarine warfare against the Japanese With that being said there is also a fair amount of combat described in this book which takes you away from the main theme The author insist in telling the reader the entire history of the war in the Pacific as well as the personal history of several submarine officers This made the book twice as long Much was made by the author
