Description
Merchant mariner Sully Jordan never dreamed that he would be actively involved in U.S. naval defense against Hitler's U-boat onslaught in World War II. Not until his tankers are torpedoed twice by the same relentless, stealthy submarine with snarling leopards painted on its conning tower. What ensues is one man's gritty battle against an invincible U-boat. As he sets the scene, Theodore Taylor's action-packed narrative cuts swiftly between the German and Allied camps, skillfully delineating each side's complex tactics in tracking the enemy's actions. Fascinating details of the British use of subtle psychological warfare, the French Resistance's intricate espionage network, American expediency, and Germany's advanced technology and single-minded determination to win the war take us gradually to the climactic denouement. Taylor's portraits of two equally patriotic men - Sully Jordan and his German counterpart, Horst Kammerer, the captain of the furtive submarine - provide a unique, periscopic vision of the highly charged and driven war.
