Many thanks for that.Always pleased to promote the book DESTROYER CAPTAIN by RODGER HILL.
A very honest account of an RN captain during ww2. He has no qualms about showing his faults instead of emphasizing others cock ups.
By the way anyone interested in submarine warfare in ww2 should read One of our submarines by Edward young.
Fighting Destroyer the story of HMS Petard by G.G.Connell is another good read that lets you into the day to day business of waging war at sea. One thing that strikes me about all the above books is that they appear timeless in so much as the people in desperate situations are not so much different than the same people today. I hope.
My Grandfather was on HMS Matabele - PQ8.
As Ewart Brooke wrote in Destroyer - "froze in less time than it took to boil an egg"
