Destination Dardanelles The Story of HMS E7
Wilson, Michael
Leo Cooper UK 1988 
 Hardcover ex-Lothian lib, usual stamps, plastic over-wrapper, just a whisker under 500g.194 well-presented pages. Maps, photos. Submarine's operations in the North Sea & Sea of Marmora based on the diary of her commander 1914-15. A very apt book in the light of attempts to plan for the return of Australia's small sub from the seabed (I believe a figure of 20 million was an estimate) Contents >> E7 had a short career in World War I. She took part in the Second Heligoland Bight Patrol along with E5, D2 and D3. She and the other submarines returned from the patrol on 18 August 1914. Then on 30 June 1915, E7 began a 24-day patrol in the Sea of Marmara. She succeeded in sinking 13 ships and damaging many more. The German Submarine UB-14 was in port of Chanak to await repairs. While there on 4 September, word came of the British submarine E7 entangled in Turkish antisubmarine nets off Nagara Point. The U-Boat's commander, Oberleutnant zur See Heino von Heimburg, Prince Heinrich of Prussia, and UB-14's cook, a man by the name of Herzig, set out in a rowboat to observe the Turkish attempts to destroy E7. . . . buy the book & find out what was next.  Very Good/Very Good

Tawney has a song by the same title, here's the first verse > Don't mind the rain or the rolling sea, The weary night never worries me. But the hardest time in sailor's day Is to watch the sun as it dies away. It's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line. The book is a compilation of one hundred fifteen Navy songs from the author's personal collection. And from the dj >> it has ... songs reflecting every aspect of life in the twentieth-century Royal Navy, both upper and lower deck: war, ship's routine, aviation, submarines, the antics of dockyard personnel, not to mention the matelot's shore-going adventures, both amorous and bibulous. review >>> The book is beautifully illustrated with anecdotes galore.  Excellent/Excellent

Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy
Crane, David
Harper Press UK 2009 
 Hardcover Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy by David Crane is 480pp, 2 picture sections, 800g to post. Crane offers a unique portrait of the Royal Navy (through the lives of 3 sailors) at a time when it held unchallenged dominion over the world's oceans. reviewer says > A superbly researched work, this utilises contemporary accounts, private letters and official navy to look at the careers of three officers. The first, Frank Abney Hastings, is perhaps the most interesting, for, in the search for glory, action and battle after being sacked in disgrace over a row with superiors, he ended up commanding a steam ship in the defence of Greece - a strange end for a Royal Navy officer. The author builds a powerful case that Hastings transformed sea warfare in the age - his success in the hitherto untested steam boat, using the latest in firepower made the world sit up and take note. Prime Minister Robert Peel's son William and his glittering career had its defining moments on land, although he was a naval man, taking part in the horror of the Crimean war and tackling the Indian mutiny. In a book, ostensibly purely concerned with courage, James Goodenough is the joker in the pack, but knowing the original title makes his inclusion more logical. It was Goodenough who really tried to put into effect an `Empire with a conscience' policy, battling with authority for what he perceived as indigenous peoples' rights, only to die at the height of his powers, ironically from a native's poisoned arrow. All three represent the navy at its best - independence of thought, a strong sense of duty and incredible bravery under fire. The navy, of course represented Britain around the world, and by the time of Goodenough, the author shows it was beginning to recognise its moral as well as military roles. A cracking read about a fascinating time in history.   Excellent/Very Good/Very Good

Destination Dardanelles The Story of HMS E7
Wilson, Michael
Leo Cooper UK 1988 
 Hardcover Book is just a whisker under 500g.194 nicely presented pages. Maps, photos. Submarine's operations in the North Sea & Sea of Marmora based on the diary of her commander 1914-15. A very apt book in the light of attempts to plan for the return of Australia's small sub from the seabed (I believe a figure of 20 million was an estimate) Contents >> E7 had a short career in World War I. She took part in the Second Heligoland Bight Patrol along with E5, D2 and D3. She and the other submarines returned from the patrol on 18 August 1914. Then on 30 June 1915, E7 began a 24-day patrol in the Sea of Marmara. She succeeded in sinking 13 ships and damaging many more. The German Submarine UB-14 was in port of Chanak to await repairs. While there on 4 September, word came of the British submarine E7 entangled in Turkish antisubmarine nets off Nagara Point. The U-Boat's commander, Oberleutnant zur See Heino von Heimburg, Prince Heinrich of Prussia, and UB-14's cook, a man by the name of Herzig, set out in a rowboat to observe the Turkish attempts to destroy E7. . . .now is the time to buy the book & find out what was next.  Very Good/No Jacket
