Baxter, Richard  
Stand By To Surface
 Picture
Publisher: Cassell and Company Ltd, 1944 London.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Foreword by Admiral Sir Charles Little. "This is the story of ordinary men, but ordinary men whom the traditions and life of the Submarine Branch have made heroes. In forty years this young branch of the Fleet has developed, fought two wars and learnt to 'serve'! The Commanding Officer has all the excitement of the dive but also the responsibility; waiting eyes on diving-wheel, kingston, fore end, engine-room and communications watch for his smallest wish, while enemy propellers sound overhead and depth-charges foretell his purpose. These are heroes too! And so it is with our Allies, Polish, Dutch, Greek or American: all speak the language of the submarine. Admiral Sir Reginald Custance once said to me: 'What I liked about your submarine was its similarity to the sailing man-of-war, all knew the ship and worked as a team.' To all who love the Royal Navy and love adventure, I commend this book. Mr. Richard Baxter has done a great service, especially to youth, in bringing some of the life and exploits of our submarine personnel before the public." 208 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; aging. Dust jacket is in POOR condition; present but with excessive wear.
