Incredible Story As a self proclaimed student of WW II, I really enjoyed the first two books I read by Mr Homewood, and thought I d take a chance and read his third book, Torpedo I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who likes War Stories I would like to be able to ask the author the reason he made a point of putting two officers in his first two books who were obviously Jewish, the sonarman who went down with the sub whose name I believe was Cohen, the rabbinical student, and then Stein in the second book. This book goes further in Mike Brannon s career There is a lot politics, but plenty of suspense as well, but not much in the way of battle scenes since WW II ended in book II.The question to ponder is if you are one of the two big boys on the block as far as military might is concerned, when do you flex your muscle As you develop high tech weapons that have no means to legitimately test except in battlefield, how do you resist the urge to test themor do you Think about that as you read this book.This is a good read no pun intended and the completion of the Silent War trilogy I liked them all I recommend them to anyone who likes military novels. Cold War revisitedGood story on the cold way, keeps you turning virtual pages Story like a little improbable but it s fiction right. Great book.With the time to read Enjoyed the entire series of books You will not be disappointed in reading these books. Unfortunately, despite the author s previous two books being pretty good, this third book is another book where I found the main premise to be completely unbelievable That really made the whole story not work for me, so I didn t enjoy this book The writing was OK, but the characters weren t particularly well drawn, so sometimes I had a difficult time trying to keep track of who was who I wouldn t really recommend this book, even to someone who is interested in submarines there are much better books out there. Intense to the very endThis book sort of reminded me a little bit of the movie Crimson Tide Although the stories are different the edge of your seat non stop drama adding in the fact that each side sank another s sub Tensions are extremely high throughout Makes you wonder if stuff like this really did happen.
