The Midget Submarines by Pamela Mitchell
"The story of a small handful of midget submarines whose 5 man crews won a total of four Victoria Crosses and many more decorations for bravery of the highest order. Discouraged time and again by higher authority, they managed by sheer tenacity, to make a disproportionately high contribution to the defeat of the Axis Powers in Europe and the China Seas. An understated story with moments of dedication, suspense, tragedy and quiet heroism. The story is told by the men and women who were there and by the author an ex WREN who followed her own wartime service by years of devoted research into the complete story of the X Craft from conception and construction, through the highest traditions of service, to the premature and undeserved ignominy of the Breaker's Yard."
