Shadow Divers

Shadow Divers

Fantasitc book about deep sea wreck divers that found a German WWII U-Boat off the coast of New Jersey.

It's a story that has everything - mystery, love, loss, alcoholic sea captains, nazis and death. I can't say enough about it. Even better, Peter Weir, director of one of the best movies of the new century, Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World, is making a movie out of the story.

But get the book, it's full of interesting information that they probably won't cover in the movie in great detail. Like how they identify submarines.

I bring this up because two more German U-Boats have been found.

Two submarine wrecks, believed to be uncharted WWI German U-boats, have been discovered by chance off Orkney.
