Richard Billings tells a fascinating story about the submarine I-52, Japanese naval personnel, and Paul Tidwell, the salvager. He weaves information gathered from declassified World War II radio intercepts, personal interviews, and observations during an expedition to the I-52, transitioning between the events of 1943-44 and 1995-98. This is not a 'history' book, but lively non-fiction that reads like a novel.
