My neighbor was a submariner in WW II. His stories are fantastic and a tribute to his generation. The four men whose lives are recounted by Colton are nothing less. The trials and hardships of submarine life as well as those they left behind is a wonderful story. Sons and daughters of WW II veterans should read this book.
