This is the graphic personal account of a Soviet submariner during his years at sea in the Baltic during the Second World War. It describes all the action - and there was plenty of it - that the author was involved in, including numerous engagements with and sinkings of German shipping in the Baltic. There were some horrifyingly close calls and none more so than when his submarine became trapped in netting and only just managed to extricate itself . Conditions were harsh and danger was never far away; mechanical errors were a daily occurrence. Somehow the author and his colleagues managed to survive the war and witness the victory over the Nazis.
