ENEMY SIGHTED by Alec Hudson


Email this review


The author of Hattie Stations is tapping war background for his settings and reveals an intimate first hand knowledge of the technical and strategic aspects in his stories. This new book is the tale of an engagement between a pocket battleship in the Indian Ocean and a cruiser and submarine. A great deal of it is too scientific for the average woman reader, so earmark it as a ""man's book"" -- good adventure, with an authentic feel in the life on the cruiser, on the sea aspects of the story, on the lack of woman interest, on the routine of modern warfare, -- build-up, thirty four minutes of carnage, and the denouement. Ran in the SEP.
