Lenihan has a clear passion for diving, and is a strong advocate for preserving the nation's underwater cultural artifacts. It was a nice contrast to Shadow Divers another fabulous diving book , in which many of the wreck divers took 'souvenirs' from the wreck sites, often parts of the superstructure, ensuring that later divers would miss out on the experience, and robbing archeologists and historians valuable data about our maritime past.
The SCRU philosophy of carefully removing a minimum of material from a site, and focusing on preservation, made me glad to see my tax dollars going to something worthwhile for a change.

It's a fascinating book for divers, and is not unlike listening to BS stories from a grizzled old-timer. From the initial chapters, I thought this would be more about rescues than wrecks, but by chapter 4, the author gets his stride and focuses more on the wrecks. I can't say he's great at bringing other characters to life, but he is very detailed when it comes to the wrecks and technical challenges of each expedition. Admiral Hipper-class cruiser.
