Great details of WWII Submarine Patrols
This is the best book I have read about submarine operations in WWII. If you are interested in what it must have been like to risk your life every day this is a book you should read.
I have served on Nuclear Subs and have looked for good descriptions of just how the Subs did what they did in WWII. This gives you all those details.
Captain O'Kane is truly the best of the "war time" skippers and was able to conduct the most productive patrols of any submarines in the Pacific.
Great story with a lot of detail.

The Bravest Man
This is an excellent book that "listens" easily. I had no background on the undersea war and found the book to be fascinating. I enjoyed the reader and the writing style of the author. You will walk away from this book with a much greater appreciation for what submariners endured---- they truly were a different breed. You will also gain an appreciation for the evolving technology --- how early undersea weapons were scandalously unreliable and how the "skippers" fought to get better torpedos with which to accomplish their mission----to sink enemy shipping. Great book!!
