HMS Tally Ho, captained by Commander L.W.A. Bennington was a T-class submarine which achieved spectacular success in the Second World War. Her name was chosen for her by Winston Churchill and it proved a very suitable one for a hunting submarine. In a single commission, lasting from 15th March 1943 to 26th February 1945, she operated in the Malacca Strait. Here, surrounded by enemy air bases and in badly charted shallow waters - so shallow that many experts considered them unsuitable for submarine operations - she took a heavy toll of enemy warships and supply vessels. The boat, her captain and her crew are all vividly portrayed in this exciting chronicle which is the fruit of wide and detailed research.

Quality, or lack of it

The maps, tables and crew list were too small to read wihout a magnifying glass, The whole book was riddled with spelling mistakes, grammar howlers and typos - the best thing about Ebooks is they don't take up much space, otherwise....

Nice read

I enjoyed reading this book. Having read other similar accounts, this one was easy to read and informative. It lacked a sense of drama however, possibly reflecting the captain's lack of enthusiasm for anything like publicity. Occasionally the account skips across events you feel should have been worthy of several pages. Otherwise though, a good book.
