      Shadow Divers, however, didn't lack for a story. The book is a recount of the discovery of a previously unknown U-boat off the coast of New Jersey, and the divers' journey to positively identifying it. I enjoyed the book a lot, with a few very strong parts that pulled me out of . of written history, by questions the divers came to ask about themselves as men. For six years, Chatterton and Kohler were shadow divers. For six years, they went on a remarkable journey. I wrote this book to take you there with Size: 3MB.

The story of the efforts to identify the sub and its man crew is vividly and, at times, chillingly described by Robert Kurson in his book, Shadow Divers: The True Adventure of Two Americans Who Discovered Hitler's Lost Sub.

Yet the book is about more than just the sub: it's also about humanity. Shadow Divers mentions Henry Keatts' Complete Wreck Diving: A Guide to Diving Wrecks, but Amazon and reviews describe it more as a companion piece to a wreck-diving course.

I am interested in the "this is the why's and the how's as to why I dropped anchor here" explanations. Unless, Keatts' book has a detailed chapter(s) on the subject.
