January 2020 Read - Gone to Sea in a Bucket by David Black
I have long threatened to do this, and I generally do what I say I am going to, so January's read will be Gone to Sea in a Bucket, a modern entry in the genre of WWII Submarine Novel. The book is the first of a series, currently 5, tracing the career of young Harry Gilmore in the Royal Navy, and in particular, the rakish Submarine Service. Harry is a Scot from a moderately well-off family, and his father is infamously a strict pacifist.
I fully expect to be reading this book by myself, so hoot away. And before I am castigated for it, there is indeed a WWII Submariner RPG - US centered, it is true, but easily adapted to British Service.
