Dust on the Sea was published to great acclaim in 1972 on the heels of Run Silent, Run Deep, Edward L. Beach's first best-selling novel of submarine warfare. Like its predecessor, this novel was lauded for its authentic portrayal of a submariner's life during the desperate years of World War II in the Pacific. Tense, dramatic, and rich in technical and tactical detail, the book draws on Beach's years of experience as a submariner in the U.S. Navy. In describing the commander and crew of a fictitious sub named the USS Eel as they attempt to destroy Japanese ships and save American lives, Beach treats readers to a blend of action and adventure along with an authentic view of the personal agonies of war. With no margin for error, the men withstand storms, depth charges, and even hand-to-hand combat to defend themselves and their boat.
As the title of this book reminds us, mistakes result in a streak of debris known as dust on the sea, which briefly serves as a grave marker for a sunken ship.
