    I've only seen the film so far, but I think it would be fitting to go out and read the book now...

    I read the book way back in '83, when I was on a long bus ride to Chicago, to go to the MEPS station when I signed up for the Navy. I was riveted by that book and read the whole thing before I got home. The book is so much better than the movie...the movie left a lot of stuff out. (Don't get me wrong, I did like the movie. I like to watch it in the original German.Makes it seem so realistic!)

    RIP Another piece of history is committed to the ages.......

    Very sorry to hear that.

    Das Boot is a brilliant film - I think I must have watched 5 or six times!

    Must say I liked his photo journalist work The U-boat War more than his novel.
