Action packed sea adventure

I picked up this bite of fact from this book: Cooke states that the US Navy underwater forces in the Pacific fought the only successful submarine campaign in either 20th century world conflicts.

The Shigure was a Japanese destroyer equipped with the latest anti-submarine weapons. It sunk the USS Seatrout. Jack Tremaine was newly assigned to command the USS Whitefin. The Seatrout was his first command so he was seeking vengeance on the Shigure.

The book is well written but I do not think it is as well written as Cooke’s prior book “Pride Runs Deep”. The second half of the book is nonstop action under the sea and on land. Cooke does a good job with battle scenes. Overall it makes a good action packed get- away- from- it- all book.

The book is about 14 hours long. Tim Campbell does a good job narrating the book.
