Summary

Spring, 1941. France has fallen but the Free French naval forces are in no mood to surrender. Royal Navy Sub-Lieutenant Harry Gilmour is also ready for action, despite the horrors of his first taste of submarine warfare.

When he is appointed as British Navy Liaison Officer aboard the Free French submarine Radegonde, he finds it anarchic, disorientating - and very French. Within its claustrophobic confines, suspicion and misunderstanding are rife.

So when Radegonde is sent on a mission to Martinique, it's vital that these proud men learn to work together, especially as it seems everyone from Churchill to de Gaulle - not to mention Hitler - has a stake in the outcome.

Will Harry be able to navigate these dangerous waters safely and return with hard-won wisdom, or will old enemies arise to sink him?

Dreadful Accents

Dreadful accents, especially French, spoil what might otherwise be an interesting book about the Service by David Black. No more James Langton for me.

A cracking yarn of young submarine officers

I congratulate David Black for #2 of an elegant subsea series . Brisk, totally believable action. Lightly sketched characters. Somehow, the strategic and political background, the technical details and the crammed crew conditions are lightly blended into a novel of quality. I was immersed.

Can A Dog Be Happy On A Submarine?

The answer won't be found here, but I did find out something I did not know. English officers served on Free French Submarines during WWII, an interesting posting!
