Books/Films of RN in WW2

Discussion in 'Social & Reunions' started by forth60, Aug 28, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Best/worst film about the RN in WW2
    Best/ worst novel about the RN in WW2

    Any thoughts, anybody?
    My suggestions:
    Best films : The Cruel Sea, The Battle of the River Plate (another not WW2 but close after - The Yangste Incident)
    Worst: The Gift Horse

    Best Books:
    The Cruel Sea
    HMS Ulysses

    Worst books:
    Any by Douglas Reeman (I am so chokka of most of his characters biting their lips, touching sleeves, or their medal ribbons, giving out sobs, speaking in clipped, very short sentences a la Noel Coward, usually with exclamation marks! and going to pieces as soon as they meet a piece of skirt)

    "It is seaman, not ships that constitute a Navy' - Adm. Sir Charles Napier
