Publisher's Summary

Submarines glide along on their dangerous missions, their crews performing difficult tasks under arduous conditions. The mystique associated with these boats is evidenced by the number of movies and television shows dedicated to the subject. But nowhere else will you find the lighter side of submarine operations - childish pranks, retrieving lost sailors, and even humorous episodes involving the father of the nuclear Navy, Admiral Rickover. Within this series of books are humorous short stories brought directly from inside American submarines. They reflect the "work hard, play hard" attitude of sailors of the silent service.

Submarine Life - The Raw Deal

Would you consider the audio edition of Death From Below - Volumes 1 and 2 to be better than the print version?

I can tell you that this is the book that portrays the reality of the United States Naval Submarine Force. As an ex-submariner, I found myself busting a gut while reading (and relating) to the hilarious stories in this book. Del Laughery portrayed the life of a submariner as the way it is.Note: This book is not just for ex-submariners! Del explains the details vividly enough that even NUBS (read the book for definition of word) can envision the story being told. Anyone interested in what happens at sea on a submarine should get this book. Especially if you have friends or family at sea and you want to know what their up to. Get the book and be ready for laughter!!!

What other book might you compare Death From Below - Volumes 1 and 2 to and why?

Nothing compares as I've never read anything that comes this close to getting it right!

What about Barry Campbell’s performance did you like?

Barry had a great solid performance! He even sounded a bit salty when speaking as the Captain!! Kudos!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yea! I laughed my butt off!!!!

Any additional comments?

Get this book! You'll be glad you did. Be warned though. Just like a submarine deployment, there is crude language throughout.
