    1. This is the third book in this series The author does an exemplary job of describing the period British submarines That being said, this particular book lacks the exhilarating pace of the previous 2 books in the series The book comes across as a literary version of the Film Noir style of movies He seems to get lost in the minutiae of the story at the expense of the fast paced drama in the previous two books The reader can become quickly bogged down in plodding details Still, the book is worth re [...]


    2. Another great oneI have become hooked on Fullerton s Nick Everhardt series about naval warfare during World War I If you are a fan of naval history filled with suspense, this is for you.


    3. Fullerton has done it again His Navy background, plus meticulous research, has created a book that evokes the feeling of serving on a claustrophobic WWI submarine I only wish he were still around to create amazing nautical tales Highly recommended.




    4. Nicholas Everard is part of a submarine crew sent, in the waning weeks of the First World War, to the Bosporus Straits to help bottle up the Turkish fleet in harbor there.
