James Follett

One of the most remarkable stories to come out of W.W.II. Based on the remarkable story of `The U-boat that lost its Nerve'(formerly a radio play by James Follett) , U-700 is an account of the surrender of a U-boat (actually U-570) to an RAF Hudson during World War II and the subsequent illegal court martial of the U-boat’s first officer by his fellow officers in a POW camp.

It took a while for me to get into this, but when I did, I really enjoyed it. Kretschmer’s a great character and I’ve really liked the other Eagles works Follett has done, so this was quite interesting. I thought it’d be more of a kangaroo court, but the final chapters were actually thrilling and intense.
