You have seen the movies and know what submarines are, that the service men and women are below the surface of the seas for months on end, but you don’t understand what they go through until you read Heroes Beneath the Waves. I am in awe of all those who have served and still do. Thank you for serving and thank you Mary Nida Smith for telling their stories before it was too late.

True Stories of Mariners, how they served, and what they endured.Reviewed in the United States on 20 June 2016
Awesome history on those who fought underwater in submarines. This book is well written with true stories showing the hardships and great endurance these brave men displayed. The individual stories are touching with great information about the key roles played by these mariners.I'm not one to read war stories, but do love to read personal experiences we humans have while we live. This book served me well and will also be a great read for those who enjoy reading war history and would make an excellent gift for anyone who is serving or has served in the past.

Learn wartime experiences of those men who go under water to serve our causesReviewed in the United States on 27 July 2019
Great book about submarines and the men who serve on them during war time, and peace time.
Amazing stories - I couldn't put it down!Reviewed in the United States on 11 August 2016
I was mesmerized by this book. I typically prefer historical fiction but this had so many good REAL stories from those who actually lived through some terrifying times. I had no idea about the evolution of the submarine nor did I know the critical part they played in our success as a nation in WWII until I read this book.

Good history but a bit sluggish to read.
