Albeit with some authorial enhancement, "This book is the thrilling day-by-day story of a daring hunting raid of German submarine, by the officer in charge. How the undersea boat is maneuvered, how it feels to spend a night at the bottom of the sea, how the English and French attempt to guard the Channel against the enemy's deadly U-boats, the emotions of the officers and crew of the little 202 in the presence of what seemed death the next minute and also in the midst of marvelous achievement of their sinister tasks."
