This historical record of life on board HMS Safari is based on original first-hand accounts. As the boat's leading telegraphist, Arthur Dickison had a privileged position in the crew, with access to all signals traffic and the navigation officer as his boss who gave him an insight into why they were doing what they did. Over 18 months of war patrols he kept a personal diary of life aboard Safari, which was strictly against the rules. In it he records daily events ranging from the tedium of long sea passages to stalking enemy convoys, crash dives and fighting it out on the surface. The whole range of the submariner's experience and emotion is explored here in this account. Written at the time, by a rating and not an officer, this diary offers an insight into life at sea.

While the editorial description of this book sounded interesting, the book itself was an extremely boring disappointment. The bulk of this book deals with what the author ate and when he slept and how much he missed his wife. The actual battle descriptions are rushed through, sometimes in two or three sentences, while the author's personal daily routine goes on and on for pages. It is interesting to note that although the HMS Safari is touted as one of England's most deadly subs, the majority of it's sinkings were of small craft and schooners by gun action. Even enemy ships which ran themselves aground to escape being torpedoed are counted by the Brits as tonnage sunk! Overall, I couldn't wait for this book to end. BORING!

I have read a number of books on submarines and submarine action. This book I found very moving, the author was a very young man when the experiances within the book occured. One can sense his very real fears and hopes within his words. The events within the book were recorded in real time as they were unfolding. The life on board a submarine in wartime was not all action and gunfighting. This is effectively conveyed through out the book. To summerize; a very real, true to life depiction of life on and off board a British sub at war.

My father was a submariner on this boat and received the DSM for service in action. Obviously this means the book is of personal interest to me however it is a great insight into life on a sub during WW2. Day to day life was tedious and monotonous they weren't always fighting. However this diary provides the reader with a ratings view of the war. Something that was technically not allowed.
As a personal perspective it is a worthy historical document.
