The one thing the heroes in this collection have in common is the ability to seamlessly shift identities

The one thing the heroes in this collection have in common is the ability to seamlessly shift identities. Each of the men and women in these stories had the courage to meet and study their enemies, gather critical intelligence, and then relay those secrets at risk of being exposed-to do what they had to because that was their duty and the lives of others meant more to them than their own.

The Greatest Flying Stories Ever Told. This is a book wrapped in adventure with nostalgia, a book with writing that both soothes and crackles. Besides being a solid volume on its own, it serves as a fine introduction to a variety of writers readers may pursue at length" - St. Mary's Press. Few would quarrel with the selection of any of the 29 writers included as among the best in the game. He is the author of the novel, On Dangerous Ground.

For decades, readers and filmgoers alike have found the drama of submarine stories to be compelling and irresistible: men locked in steel cocoons, fighting the sea, the enemy, even themselves. There are sea chases, submarine wolf packs stalking their prey, stunning and numbing depth-charge attacks, survival epics, miraculous rescues, and journeys of exploration. Submarine tales inherently are filled with action, adventure, and vivid portraits ofextraordinary skill and courage in the face of agonizing death beneath the waves. The Greatest Submarine Stories Ever Told will bring readers, in a single book, some of the most engaging and illuminating prose ever put on paper about submarines. These twenty tales are not just about torpedo and depthcharge attacks, vivid as those are. They are also about feats of exploration, such as the Nautilus nuclear sub surfacing at the North Pole; unusual military feats like the German attack on British ships at Scapa Flow; and the courage and teamwork used to carry out operations when the odds of success and survival seemed nil. The distinguished works excerpted will include, among others: Sharks and LittleFish; Nautilus 90 North; Torpedo Junction, Homer Hickam Jr.’s superb account of battles with U-boats off the Atlantic Coast in 1942; and accounts of famous submarine tragedies such as the losses of America’s Thresher and Russia’s K-19. For readers who like tales brisk with pace and action and the feel of challengingthe seven seas, The Greatest Submarine Stories Ever Told will be a much-anticipated new book.

Wunderbar!!! The condition of the book is BETTER than described!

On a scale of 1 to 10 this book would be -5. Very very poorly written.
Author did not condense stories effectively. Critical events ended without some indication of the outcome. I have read many of the books retold in this book and the authors work is totally inadequate. I have returned the book for refund. Your policies are out standing. The book is really bad. I have about 125 submarine books, I served on 2 old boats in the late 50's. The authors work is a great disservice to those who risked (and many lost) their lives in service to our nation. Thank you.
Maucage
This is an awesome book containing numerous tales taken from other submarine history books. Like a series of short stories, it is hard to put down!

Good book.

The history of the sea is filled with the stories of disasters. And that's about ships that are intended to stay on the surface. Submarines are intended to sink, and hopefully come back up.

While the editor has done a very credible job of selecting examples of submarine stories, each book is represented by a relatively short excerpt (usually a single chapter). The potential reader must consider that he/she may have their appetite whetted for a particular book or books, but it will then be necessary to seek out a copy of those should there be a desire to read more. Such classics as "The Boat" (The basis for the movie "Das Boot"), Beach's "Run Silent, Run Deep", "The Hunt for Red October", and Calvert's "Silent Running" are presented, but the reader should recognize that these are excerpts, and not full-length stories nor condensations.
