Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, October 15, 2019
I got this fair-condition paperback at a local Savers thrift store, and was glad of another release copy. It's a fascinating account of the sinking of the submarine Squalus in 1939, and of the race to attempt to rescue the trapped crew. Instrumental in the rescue was Swede Momson, who had been working on a variety of safety and rescue gear specifically for such situations. A wonderful, tense account - not for the claustrophobic!

[There's a 2001 TV-movie based on the book.]

I left this book on top of a gas pump at the Border convenience-store-and-gas-station at 383 Middlesex; hope someone enjoys it!
