HASH(0x92dc7bdc) von 5 Sternen A quick read but not a great read 8. Dezember 2009
Von Matt Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I picked up We Were Pirates I expected a firsthand account of the Pacific War with a ghost writer and what I found was that two men have edited and woven Chief Robert Hunt's diary into We Were Pirates. While well written I found myself wishing I was reading Chief Hunt's diary with commentary by Chief Hunt. At one point Hunt by mistake fires a torpedo then the authors kept on talking about a leak in the torpedo room. It seems likely that the torpedo went through the outer torpedo tube door and damaged the tube causing the leak but the authors lack of knowledge of submarines is shown here. The authors spend too much time on Hunt's time ashore and not enough exploring the war patrols or bringing in other material supplementing Hunt's diary. the pressures of the war patrols would be far more helpful than the exploits of Chief Hunt's letting off steam. The purpose of a good History is to explore causes in order to understand the consequences, I found myself skipping over the beach portions of the book.

The end of the book became difficult to read because the main author Robert Schultz goes into first person account of hero worship for Chief Hunt and while interesting the purpose of reading this book is to know about Chief Hunt experiences not Dr. Schultz's. It is a very irritating trend in recent histories to have the author imbed themselves into the narrative. In the end it was an easy read but a book that I can't say added much to the submarine history library. It is a shame we couldn't have Chief Hunt's words and experience firsthand.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I liked the fact that the book did not get too technical and showed the human side of the submarine sailors. I do not normally enjoy books of this type, but I found this one fascinating because it painted a complete picture of Bob Hunt, and dealt not just with his experiences in battle but also his life off the boat, and his life before and after the war. At the same time, it put what they were experiencing into the context of World War II. If more "war books" were written like this, I would read more of them.

HASH(0x92dc9198) von 5 Sternen Worthwhile Read 2. Juni 2010
Von M. Casale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As someone who enjoys WWII Navy/Submarine memoirs I was excited to see that there was a new memoir written by a sub sailor. My excitement turned to skepticism however when I learned that the book was written instead by two authors who based the book on the sub sailors diary and personal interviews. I had to read the book however and I am glad that I did. There are a couple reviews here that make some good points about the book in that it could have been better if they fit the sailors experiences within the wider context of the war and that some battle actions and patrols are glossed over and that there are a few points that technically could have been better explained. I also agree that the one chapter dealing with the USS Tambors actions during the Battle of Midway were marginal and that this chapter should have been condensed. I can agree with these points of view however if you enjoy a good sub sailors memoir I would still urge someone to buy it. Although its not as strong as McCleods memoir - Sub Duty - or Ron Smith's - Torpedoman - I still felt it was a very good book and well worth purchasing. After reading my impression was that it was written well and that the sailor has a great story to tell. There are plenty of sub books out there that you can read that describe every attack on every patrol however it seems the authors chose to purposely go into detail on only some of the more harrowing ones. In fact the one chapter in which the Tambor undergoes an all day depth charging was very thrilling. I realize that some people may be turned off regarding the stories of the sailors time in port partying but he also has some poignant personal experiences too. I feel that too many books do not give enough attention to a serviceman's activities when they are out of combat. If this sounds appealing I ask you not to blow vent but to give it a try. Its probably the last WWII US Sub book were ever going to see !

As a submarine sailor, that has served on several WWII boats, I truley enjoyed reading this book. It is written from the perspective of the everyday sailor and not from the perspective of the commander. The nitty gritty of everyday life aboard a submarine is wonderfully captured in this book, and Bob Hunt is truely a hero in my book. What courage it had to take to volunteer for 12 war patrols. Those old boats did have their safety issues, even in the 60's when I sailed on them, add that factor to the wartime conditions that he sailed under, WOW! Many thanks to Bob and the authors!
