In 1939 the author was in Cornwall under the slowly darkening clouds of war. He watched the BritishFleet sail down the Channel to action stations. He talked to the coastguards and fishermen about the threat of U-Boats off the Cornish coast. Out of these experiences grew an astonishing story of espionage, violence and the claustrophobic stress of life under the sea.

Hammond Innes never wrote a book about a place without going there and putting his feet in the shoes of the people you meet in his stories. Fantastic stories, but based in the real world, so you learn as you are entertained.

I enjoyed this story, as I have enjoyed all Innes novels. This one could have been titled better, so don't let that throw you off. It was interesting and I didn't want to put it down. There just isn't anything written these days that equals these classics for pure simple reading pleasure.

Hammond Innes was a superb British novelist specializing in sea stories. As with most mid-to-late 19th century British writers his writing is best-quality, and the plot of this book is exciting and original. He doesn't need to rely on graphic violence or sex to make this tale compelling. The book is set in WW2-era Cornwall, and is in equal parts war, crime, and mystery-adventure novel. A very enjoyable read.

The novel for the most part was quite boring

This was Hammond Innes' first book, published just after the outbreak of WW2. Like a number of his wartime books such as 'Trojan Horse' and 'Attack Alarm', this book revolves around a clever and highly original German infiltration of Britain.

What is interesting is that even at this early stage, the typical Innes elements are all in place. Walter Craig is the "everyman", a drama critic on holiday who through no fault of his own gets drawn into the story. Maureen Weston is a capable, resourceful, and very engaging heroine; the narrative actually shifts to allow her to tell her story through extended letters, which is not something I believe Innes ever did again. Logan, too, is a fascinating; Innes has already established his trademark of making the most interesting character someone other than the narrator.

The central plot is very clever, and the story progresses quite well. The only issue I have is with the ending. The idea of a handful of people overpowering hundreds of experienced German sailors is a bit far-fetched, even if the way in which Craig and Logan go about it is well thought out. Innes generally avoided such gung-ho theatrics in his books.

Since it's his first book, 'Wreckers Must Breathe' is as good a place as any to start with Hammond Innes. Just be aware that this isn't quite as solid as his late 40's and 50's work, and has nowhere near the depth of his epic 60's-90's novels.
