Armchair Generals Blog: Submarine Commander by Rear Admiral Ben Bryant
When we think of the Second World War at sea the images are often of Atlantic convoys, being stalked by German U-Boats. This book offers a different perspective. Submarine Commander by Rear Admiral Ben Bryant takes its readers into the fight onboard S-Class submarine of the Royal Navy. From Norway, to Malta and Far East. Bryant takes the reader on a journey told in best tradition of Naval narratives and without being bogged down by the Catalogues of Ships, commands, ranks, names, and jargon that make so many books of this sort a dry read at best. This account on the other hand is vivid, and natural. A MUST READ! A book that will make good in any Second World War Library.
