Highly recommended for anyone interested in World War II, or submarine warfare in general.”—Jim DeFelice, bestselling author of Omar Bradley: General at War and Rangers at Dieppe

I disagree of some of the details of the attack as given in the book .
I details given of the landing in a earlier patrol is very distorted as I was also in the landing party ,the location of the landing of equipment was advised to the captain prior to sailing [we were exercised during the month before] and high tide prevented us from landing as directed but an alternate was chosen and successfully complete , note we did not meet any persons ashore.
It was later;: said: the equipment was landed to provide help to those in destroying a heavy water plant for a atom bomb.
There was never any reports of diesel engines [so no snorkel], the initial report was a hammering sound which was unusual to the operator this started several discussions between between the operator and the officer of the watch . It was only when the relieving o.o.w. [the first Lt. Lt. Chalmers]. .took the watch that he viewed the Uboats periscope and called Captain to the Control Room and the attack commenced.
NOTE the navigator was a Lt R.N. not an Ensign .[ a American term for a junior officer] no American services were involved in the action.
Mention was made of seaman Harry Plummer[ a friend of mine] he was o torpedoe operator with T.I.would have fired the fish. He was in the landing party in the earlier patrol with Leading Tel Byrnes and Sub/Lt. Brand.
