Run silent, run deep.
Beach Jr. This is an amazing piece of work for somebody to have knocked out in their spare time from a job which had them on call 24 hours a day. It reads as authentic, not only in the detailed and correct description of operating a combat submarine, but in the horror of a campaign marked by savagery on both sides.
I will not speak of war crimes as I don't want to moralize here. I will just say that there was little quarter asked or given by either side in the Pacific War. Most military fiction sanitizes this, in a one-sided manner more often than not. To read Skipper Beach's stories is to understand more of what my Dad went through. To read his stories is in fact, an honor. Apr 07, Carolyn rated it it was amazing. I learned more respect for the submarine warfare of World War II, even with radar, they were really exposed out there.
A tense, drama about life onboard a submarine hunting for the enemy off the coast of Japan. Well written, and it kept my attention. A very unlikely book for me, but necessary to help understand the risks men had to take when technology and radr was fairly new.

Brave souls. May 01, Ed Gray rated it really liked it. I should recuse myself since Ned Beach was a great and close friend of my father, also a submarine officer who made five combat war patrols in the Pacific in WWII. But the hell with that -- this is a really good, dead-on realistic, gripping book.
Jan 16, Brian rated it really liked it. This book was awesome, and a compliment to "UP Periscope", which I also just finished. Bravery in the sub force in WWII as well as some character development made a interesting read - just like the first time I read in in or so.

The idea of living in a small space like sardines. The constant fear of Depth Charges. The failure of torpedoes to explode on contact.

No news from home. Isolation, dirty, Little or no fresh air. Mar 01, Joe rated it it was amazing. If you want to learn about life in a submarine and how they operated in the war this book is for you. Sep 04, Grant rated it it was ok Shelves: Although fiction, contained enough detail to have been extracted from actual events. Best sub book out there for wwII action in the Pacific.
Apr 01, Garth Mailman rated it it was amazing. The author spends the first quarter of the book letting us meet the crew, their training, and testing before putting to sea.
As befits a large crew in close quarters he spends considerable time introducing the officers and their interpersonal relationships. The human dimension of a submarine is as important as the ship itself. The novel is narrated in the first person by Commander Richardson. Although the author was a submariner he manages to keep the technical jargon to a minimum.
Sooner rather than later she had to surface to recharge her batteries or she ran out of motive power and her crew out of oxygen.

A few errors but not enough to be distracting. Watched the movie version last night and though it bears the same name it cannot claim to be a true story, it is merely a historical fiction based on the main events. The writer of the forward in my edition, at least compares this book to "The Red Badge of Courage," and "All Quiet on the Western Front" as individual descriptions of wartime.
And it is a good "slice of life on a WW-2 submarine" story, as well as a well-paced action story. The author was a submarine captain, so it has realism.
But the comparison fails in that the other books' primary theme is the pointlessness and horror of war, where this one feels like all those s's war movies, focusi The writer of the forward in my edition, at least compares this book to "The Red Badge of Courage," and "All Quiet on the Western Front" as individual descriptions of wartime.
But the comparison fails in that the other books' primary theme is the pointlessness and horror of war, where this one feels like all those s's war movies, focusing on Allies' heroism, and the excitement of battle.
The characters also lack depth and nuance, but in fairness, they did in the other books as well; perhaps that's just a function of their eras' norms and expectations. Nov 13, James Murphy rated it really liked it. But I was also curious about the book that was the movie's basis. Well, I found a copy of the book and I just finished reading it.
The book has little in common with the movie which is not surprising.
The book, though, is an engrossing look at life aboard a submarine during wartime, showing the routines of the officers and Over the years I've watched the movie "Run Silent, Run Deep" and was impressed with the story of a U.
The book, though, is an engrossing look at life aboard a submarine during wartime, showing the routines of the officers and crew. The scenes depicting submarine combat give one a sense of the perils involved, especially descriptions of depth charge attacks and a harrowing scene involving a runaway torpedo. Feb 14, Pete rated it liked it Shelves: It's reasonably well written but has a fair few cliches in it.
The story is presented as being from Edward J Richardson. It starts out with submarine training and fit out and then goes on to missions in the Pacific. There is also a tacked on romantic plot. The conclusion of the novel has a pretty dramatic breach of the Geneva Convention. It's interesting but was cut from the film that was later made of the book. It's not a bad read, but it's far from great literature. Jan 17, Paul Szydlowski rated it it was amazing. A novelized story of service on a Pacific fleet submarine that I read in junior high, there is a line describing the mix of diesel fuel and every manner of bodily fluid during a depth charge attack that brought home the brutal truth and outright terror of combat that I still remember some forty-five years later.
Feb 09, Vern rated it it was amazing. Well written and realistic. A historical novel based on a compendium of actual incidents. It really pulls you into the action.
You may not enjoy it as much as I did if you are not a military history buff, but certainly worth the read if you Are at interested in what like to be a submariner during WWII.
Jul 14, hrh rated it it was amazing.
Fabulous submarine adventure from the WW II, prenuclear days. Well-written, suspenseful, and detailed. Tells a quite different story from the equally riveting film of the same name starring Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, and Don Rickles, but both versions are fascinating and worth reading or watching. Mar 19, Nathan Pellman rated it it was amazing. I think that Run Silent Run Deep is a great book if you want something that has action and adventure in it.
It sounds a lot like it is a real account of someone's life but in reality, it's fictional. The book is made by the submarine Commander Edward L. Beach, who has made eleven submarine war patrols himself. In the book the characters and events are fake but they seem like they should be true. The setting of the book changes from the Naval Submarine Base in New London to the middle of the Japa I think that Run Silent Run Deep is a great book if you want something that has action and adventure in it.
Then the last battle between Richardson, the captain of the walrus, and the submarine hunter Bungo Pete is the best part of the book. Really well written, detailed, kept my interest all the way thru.
