Well told, documented and very hard to put down. While a lot of it is based on peacetime, it was hard not to be engrossed in the history and the personal lives of six Officer Cadets joining Dartmouth back in '63, and joining them on their Naval careers which ultimately led to nuclear subs for the RN. The narrative on The Falkland's conflict is one of the best I have read...purely from a Naval and tactical point. And thier viewpoint of the Russian nuclear deterrent is a revelation.
