Sadly, the YouTube clip is better than the book.
The story is incredible.
The writing is not.
If you don’t mind preachy interludes and awkward transitions from first person to third person narration and back, then reading this book will be worth your time.
I found the beginning of Part Three thrilling, as the author connects his personal, almost diary-like account at the beginning of this book to the bulk of the story set during WWII.
But after watching the video, I didn’t feel like reading the book provided much extra insight into the era.
Who knew that German submarines invaded US waters in the 1940s? This was news to me!
