    1. Marshall returns from patrol exhausted and ready for some well-earned leave, along with the rest of the crew of their battle-scarred submarine.But there’s a special job to be done, and he’s the best man for it. This time, though, he will be commanding a captured U-boat, and at the mercy of the allies as well as the enemy.Douglas Reeman’s World War II novels are like the best black and white war movies of yesteryear – Boy’s Own adventures, but with adult emotions and multi-dimensional c [...]


    2. US edition called "Go In and Sink", presumably colonials being too stupid to get the joke about a captured U-boat being used against its former owners.Douglas Reeman drinking game: where does the English twit villain first end a sentence with an unnecessary "comma what?" As in "Bit bare, old girl, what?" Answer, here, is page 140. Reeman usually kills off the "comma what" character, or makes sure they're not the sort to get the girl.Lots of plot, and loosely based on U-570. As usual, the love st [...]


    3. February 1943.As the balance of the war slowly shifts in Britain’s favour, Lieutenant Commander Steven Marshall brings his battle-scarred submarine into home port. Captain and crew are exhausted after fourteen months’ continuous active service, but for most there can be no thought of leave.Marshall must return to the Mediterranean, but this time to a very different kind of war. For his new command is secret and extremely hazardous – a captured German U-boat.


    4. Great adventure yarn, like so many of Mr Reeman's books. He was in the British merchant navy during WW2, and puts that detailed knowledge to good use. As usual there is the hero, a girl, a worthy enemy, animosity from his superiors and much carnage as the story plays out.This particular story involves submarines and much subterfuge.



    5. Douglas Reeman definitely has a formula for his storytelling, but its so effortlessly readable and he knows his subject so well that it hardly matters and he never fails to delver his naval action with a sure touch. Indeed, in a funny sort of way, knowing there will always be a cad, a woman in danger, a crew of reasonably sketched minor crewmates and, of course, the flawed, conflicted but fundamentally sound leading man whose selfless heroism wins through. No plot spoilers- the RN using a captur [...]


    6. I first read this as a Readers Digest condensed edition and many years later got my hands on the full book. In spite of being a small boat man, Reeman writes a submarine story quite well. This one has some ties to historical events and they are woven in quite nicely.I struggled with some of the character interactions, but the overall tale of being disposable by both sides of the conflict is a compelling one.



    7. A Real Thriller!This book was so good that I had a hard time putting it down to go to bed! Absolutely one of the better fictional war stories I've read.



    8. a book on war and espionage including the day to day realities of a sailor's life. a nice read though i find it too technical at times. took a while for the author to build up the excitement.
