“Doctor Hill has done a great job relating the tale of a group of true American hero’s. He brings the right amount of submarine history and the history of many of the members of this fantastic story. Without this book the story would have been lost.” – James A, Cook “Jim Cook”, Agawam, Massachusetts.
“I’ve read tons of submarine story’s and prefer the true ones over the fiction so this one already had a plus. The men of the S-5 should have counted their blessing everyday to have gotten out with their lives. Imagine trying to drill through the hull of a sub with a hand drill? not to mention all the other trouble they were faced with, WOW. Very good story that’ll keep your attention from front to back, and great photos to go along with it.” – M. Gentry “subslug,” Fort Worth, Texas.
“Wow! Things just keep getting worse and [Commander] Cooke and his men teeter on the edge of eternity. This reads like great fiction and yet it’s so obviously true to fact. A fabulous read!” – unknown reader
“This is an absolute “must read’ for any submarine buff, but especially so if you like “S” boats. Not just for the on-edge excitement of the accident and rescue but for life in general as a submariner onboard an S-class sub in the early years of the silent service. Not much reading of this quality is available covering this time span in the subs and “Under Pressure” strikes the nail on the head. This book is proof that you don’t have to have a war to have heroes, highly recommended reading.” – Martin Siebert
