I saw this in a library and couldn't resist the premise Before WWII the French built a giant submarine with an unusual design Instead of the usual 5 deck gun she had a turret with two 8 guns plus a floatplane in a waterproof hangar The real sub served the Free French for a while in WWII before being lost in an unlucky collision while en route to the Pacific The book's premise is that a sister ship was taken over by the British in the Far East and used in several desperate missions in support of the the doomed defense of Malaya and Singapore I expected some interesting insights into how such an unusual vessel could be used No such luck Every engagement is contrived so that the big guns get a workout even though they could be aimed only a close range from such a low platform They carry out a shore bombardment without coordinating with friendly troops ashore a tactical absurdity The scout plane gets fitted with a Lewis gun on a ring mount and strafes Japanese ships another absurdity There is no mention of how clumsy such a large boat must have been on a torpedo approach nor on how vulnerable it must have been to depth charges with a pressurized turret and hangar outside the pressure hull Nor do the clumsy human interest elements make up for the book's failure as a techno thriller they have all the subtle depth of characterization of a Harleuin romance One is jarred by freuent changes of point of view In short it's amazing that so dull a book can be written on so interesting a topic
