    Just finished this excellent book which manages to combine 3 of my favourite things:

    - Wreck diving
    - Submarines (U boats)
    - Historical research

    It is the story of an incredible, brave struggle by two US divers over 6 years to identify a newly discovered U boat wreck lying at 230 feet in the approaches to New York. (You may also have seen the documentary by them.)

    It is well written and very well researched. I am not going to tell you any plot because it is a real "page turner". DO NOT READ THE END PAGES FIRST!

    I see that Abe Books have copies.
