Shadow Divers - Robert Kurson
Subtitle: The True Adventure of Two Americans Who
Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of WWII
I waited too long to read this book. My BFF
recommended it ages ago and I finally got it off my TBR list and got a copy
from the library. It was a great read.
It's the story of two men looking for shipwrecks in
the sport of "deep wreck diving". Dangerous to the extreme as well as
competitive, they find a sunken submarine off the coast of New Jersey and seek
to identify it.
I really enjoyed the relationship of these fiercely independent, risk-taking
men. Their dedication to the search and their persistence despite dead
ends and roadblocks and tragedy made for a good read.
