WW2 MN history E-Book

Not sure if I can promote this book here, anyway I just finished an e-book called "The Real Cruel Sea" by Richard Woodman, a very detailed study of the MN between 1939 and 1943 full of details and also confirms the tough times engine room staff had when torpedoed. I have read many MN books and this one is by far the best, Cost $7.50 from Amazon and is a long read. ... John

Thanks for that John will certainly be downloading. Lost my Grandfather ( 2nd Eng) at sea during those difficult times.
