TORPEDO! by Com. Gilbert Hackforth-Jones


Email this review


Stout stuff in short stories of action in war, adventures and misadventures in peace, with the accent on submarine personnel. These yarns compare favorably with Thomason's Marine tales, and give an overall picture of Royal Navy deeds, men and officers, of war hunts, torpedoings, bombings, and how men meet the enemy. There's the story of the troubles with the mascot bear; of the elephant aboard the airplane carrier; of patrol U boats, the round of activity. Good going and authentic.
