Editorial Reviews

Jon Latimer
As the first RNVR officer to hold an independent command during the Second World War, and as a highly decorated submarine commander, Young writes with a relish of his subject. He goes a long way towards overcoming one's disquiet at the nature of the job, writing with warmth and humour, so that it seems, well, almost enjoyable.
