    One thought on “The Skipper's Dog Called Stalin”

    1. A great continuation of the the series This time focusing on some of the politics but still holding the same flair and greta write the the first book had in it Really looking forward to the next one 5 Stars

    2. Another excellent readI thoroughly enjoyed this second book about Harry Gilmour and his daring do on and under the high seas The books style makes it an easy read even with the technical submarine language This type of book although fictional helps to remind readers how frightening and challenging action at sea was cut the way and in some ways educational as well It has enough action to recommend it to teen adults interested in heroics on the high seas I would recommend it to all types of audie [...]

    3. What a great series this is turning into This second installment brings with it further development of Gil s character and background The description of life under the sea, which could easily become overly complicated is told with just the right amount of technical explanation to make it real and gripping without getting bogged down There is a sub plot of life back home which is interwoven in a great way which adds to his life at sea rather than a completely separate thread Overall a very enjoya [...]

    4. Gripping exciting tale well told There are of course shades of Hornblower in many sea takes but that is hardly a bad thing This is shaping up to be a fine series of tales well told and with great characters.

    5. Brilliant Black does know how to write a good story a great little caricature of the French character and plenty of description of why a submarine is such a complicated vessel Hard to put down.

    6. A good readA good read on life on board a sub in time of war, And the wrangling of the higher up officers to keep the juniors in check.

    7. Good second bookIt was a good read not as good as book one but still enjoyable Interesting plot between the characters and the interactions also.

    8. I liked itA good follow up to Gone to sea in a bucket, Harry gets to see a bit of the world with the French navy and makes himself useful in an emergency or two.

    9. A really good narrative The technical stuff is so good also, though he would have had trouble improving on Book 1 in this series.The main character offers good characterisation The actions are well written and the historical comment is, as far as I can tell, quite accurate Although I was born during the war WWII , not before, there was still tons of various comment around when I was a boy in the 40s and 50s, so I am aware of much of this already.The descriptions of submarine life are, I believe, [...]

    10. The Skipper s Dog s Called Stalin eBook was published in 2016 and was written by David Black This is Mr Black s third publication and this is the second of his Harry Gilmour series I received a galley of this novel for review through netgalley I categorize this novel as PG because it contains some scenes of Violence The novel is set in 1941 during the early days of World War II The main character, Royal Navy Sub Lieutenant Harry Gilmour, has been assigned as the liaison officer aboard a Free Fre [...]

    11. The Skipper s Dog s Called Stalin by David Black is the second book telling of Harry Gilmour s adventures.The story is set during World War II with a lot of the action on Free French submarine David Black gives you details which makes you involved in the story It is a good historical read about life on a submarine during World War Ii There are suspicions, adventures and misunderstandings which make you wonder if you will see Harry safety thru this adventure Harry is British and things are done d [...]

    12. BarkingThe follow up to Gone to Sea in a Bucket finds Harry Gilmour once again thrust into a strange situation As liaison officer aboard a Free French Submarine The character shows a little depth this time round but still very naive To stretch the character Black has him as literally a fish out of water A series of adventures lead to a coup in Martinique and the painful split in the French nation after the surrender at Compiegne Where the first book dragged in its romantic asides this book esc [...]

    13. I won this novel in a drawing.This is a light hearted war story There used to be hundreds of novels like this, and a number of movies, usually starring Jack Lemmon The Vietnam War put the kibosh on the the entire sub genre, but maybe it s making a comeback.It s WWII, and after fleeing Vichy France, a French submarine and crew fight for the allies A British actually Scottish sailor is assigned as liaison officer for the sub The French do things very differently than the British.Very entertaining. [...]

    14. A claustrophobic story of life in a Free French submarine during the second world war.Tensions build when they are sent to Martinique and Sub Lieutenant Harry Gilmour, on secondment from the British Navy, has to hold it all together.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Thomas and Mercer via Netgalley inreturn for an honest unbiased review.

    15. A Sub with a 5 inch gun I consider myself a student of WW II, and don t know a great deal about French submarines, however, I ve never heard of a submarine with a 5 inch deck gun, but the story was really great Gilmour is a totally likeable fellow, and I look forward to his next adventure.

    16. Excellent read, a follow on from the first book in the series, Gone to Sea in a Bucket The continuing adventures of sub lieutenant Harry Gilmour RNVR in submarines during WW2.

    17. Loved it, there better be in the series, cause I love the authors characters and style of writing and the historical accuracy, gets the imagination going wild
