Beach Run Silent, Run Deep might well be called the holy grail of submarine novels. It may still be available new, but my copy is an ex-library copy, used of course, purchased through the mail. Mush Morton shot up boats carrying what he believed to be Japanese troops to safety after he sank their transport. Bledsoe uses Richardson's injury to assume command and set course for Pearl Harbor. That makes it rare and special in this genre. Bledsoe takes Walrus to Australia for her next three war patrols.

Richardson is probably trying harder than he should, but he makes it work. Clark Gable as Commander P. Silent Faro An impromptu method for setting any borrowed deck for a lovely demonstration of pure thought reading. Forester and Erich Remarque.

During his stint ashore, Richardson works on reliability problems with American torpedoes and receives another command, the new boat USS Eel. Gable, who was concerned with his super-macho screen image, insisted that Richardson be injured prior to being relieved of command. Matthew Shepherd: Screaming Walking Matthew has a certain way of going about things. The US Navy, which helped with the film's production, may have been concerned with reviving memories of a incident in which Dudley W. And here is where, perhaps, the greatest conflict of the book arises. After heavy drinking during a shore party, Bledsoe reveals to Richardson that he had only pretended to be a loyal friend and subordinate grudgingly remaining as exec during their patrols together, "for the crew's sake.

Run Silent, Run Deep book

Bledsoe takes Walrus to Australia for her next three war patrols. Mush Morton shot up boats carrying what he believed to be Japanese troops to safety after he sank their transport.

Beach's taut and dramatic narrative, told with the intimacy of a confession, deals with two strong-headed men, Edward Richardson, the commander of the USS Walrus, and his executive officer, Jim Bledsoe. Richardson wants to move up to that fleet boat, and Bledsoe is eager to get his own boat.

Unlike many war novels, here is a story that deals with war from the perspective of command. Then, when an emergency situation arises, he makes wrong choices. Richardson sends everyone else below, staying on the bridge with the hatch closed, and passing helm orders that result in running down both Japanese lifeboats.

At Gable's insistence, the film has Richardson taken seriously ill before being relieved of command so Gable would not be perceived as playing a less than dominant character. It was a major best seller when it came out, ten years after World War II. The three of them are together when they learn of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Most military fiction sanitizes this, in a one-sided manner more often than not. Over pages of exciting material from around the world. The prefatory note that purports to identify the text in this way says it was meant to be used in a war bond drivebut is unsuitable for that because Richardson "failed to confine himself to pertinent elements of the broad strategy of the war, and devoted entirely too much time to personal trivia.

Richardson has one of his own when he figures out the mysterious Morse transmission is coming from a Japanese submarine. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. There have been too many failures, including a number experienced by Richardson in Walrus.

Batfish surfaced off her home port of Charleston, South Carolina, on May 17 after 77 days submerged. As long as he could return to the fight, he could be shot in his parachute. This turns The White Room into a physical entity, with cards in hand.

The date of this undersea interception was March 17, Three of the crew are killed, and Richardson suffers an incapacitating concussion. Walrus, a new Gato class boat.

"Run Silent, Run Deep," the book, is very good for it's vintage. It really can't hold a candle to a book like "The Hunt For Red October." "Run Silent, Run Deep" will still immerse you in it's story for a full day or more/5(). Run Silent, Run Deep. by Captain Edward L. Beach, Jr.
