Torpedo Run The year was 1943 On the Black Sea the Russians were fighting a desperate battle to wrest control of its waterways from the Germans But the Russians' one real weakness was on the water whatever they did the Germans did it better and the daring hit and run tactics of the E boats plagued them At last the British agreed to send them a small flotilla of motor torpedo boats MTBs under the command of John Devane Devane had been in the Roval Navy since the outbreak of war More than a veteran he was a survivor and the two rarely went together in the savage war of MTBs Given command at short notice Devane soon learned that even against the vast and raging background of the Eastern Front war could still be a personal duel between individuals Exellent from Reeman Unusual setting in the Black Sea alongside the Russians I always enjoy his books 375 Stars At first when I read this book I only thought of it as a simple World War II book but as I read on I began to realize it was much Everything about this book was great It gets so into detail that you can't put it down It's just a really good book Besides that you kind of get into a routine when reading this because it becomes so familiarIt's interesting too It has an exceedingly interesting plot throughout the story which leaves you in suspense till the final battle Even the characters are well built I would have to say that the majority of the characters have a complex composition by the end of the book because you know about them so well You get used to them almost like you actually know them and it just really builds up their character Overall I'd have to say that this is one of the best war fiction based books I've ever read I'd recommend this book to anyone whose interests involve war One of the many WW II Naval adventures by Reeman I've never read this one which is set in the Black Sea In it an officer in charge of six English motor torpedo boats has to deal with the Germans the allied Russians and a commanding officer with his eye on promotion It's OK but Reeman has a formula and he sticks to it here The hero isn't so much battle hardened as next door to shell shocked; he has a difficult romance with a woman from home; and the other characters fit into pre assigned roles and many of them won't survive to the book's end It's a very good historical military book but it doesn't rise above its genre
