The entire book was a great insight into the life of Edward "Ned" L. Beach Jr. . It provided family historical facts regarding his father , it was well documented, and above all shows the events that impacted his life in both the U.S. Navy as well as his being an intuitive and able resource for his time in the political arena. There are NO least favorable comments from me regarding this book.

Nice book. I read a lot of military books but will rarely read one that's not a first person account because I tend to not enjoy them as much. This however was an exception. It's well written and the author had access to a lot of information about the remarkable history of Capt. Beach Jr., including records and conversations with his family. What really made the book "work" is that it was clearly important to the author to do a first-rate job telling the Captain's story, and he did. This is a story of a true American who pursued excellence in everything he did throughout his life. This Country has benefited, and continues to benefit, from men like Capt. Beach Jr. and his father.

In the early 60's I watched the film "Run Silent, Run Deep" on television and was left with a deep impression of life on a sub in the Pacific during WW II. Twenty years later, while serving as a physician on active duty in the Navy and caring for a number of submariners, I read the book that the film was based on. The details and nuances were clearly provided by someone who had "been there and done that". I was curious about further details of this prolific writer, courageous and brilliant officer, and public figure. These details have been excellently reviewed, highlighted and explored by Mr. Edward Finch in Beneath the Waves: The Life and Navy of Captain Edward Beach, Jr. Similar to Mr. Finch, my interest in naval history grew out of my father's naval service during WW II. Our fathers both served on mine sweepers, and both were reluctant to ever discuss their experiences. Mr. Finch's background was as a teacher of English for 40 years. During that time he acquired a Ph.D in history. His dissertation contained information on Capt. Beach and his father, Capt Edward Beach Senior. This led to a brief acquaintance with Capt Beach Jr. prior to his death, and later with his widow and family, who cooperated with the biography. Mr. Finch was apparently provided full access to the Beach papers held by the widow, which were extensive. The book is organized chronologically, beginning with Edward Beach Sr's arrival as a midshipman at the Naval Academy in 1884. The growth, development and education of "Ned" are highlighted throughout the nine "Parts", including his early schooling, years at the USNA, early years as a junior officer, and the "surprise" orders, sending him to sub school in Groton CT, which was never his first choice (his father had advised him to seek command of a large vessel, "like a battleship".) Typical of Capt Beach, he followed orders without question, and always gave 100%. This is really the subtext to the biography. Here is a guy with great talent, but not extraordinary genius, who worked like a dog for everything he received. He was scupulously honest, which led to bruised egos, jealously and resentment from colleagues and superiors later in life. Throughout the trials and tribulations, Capt Beach "takes it like a man", follows orders and moves on. Where are these guys now?
Clearly, Mr. Finch has deep regard and affection for his subject. How couldn't he? Yet this does not get in the way of recording mistakes that were made or the occasional appearance of personality flaws. A great feature to this book is a collection of short bio's on the extended Beach family, including his parents, siblings, spouse, in-laws and children in the appendix. There are a number of photos sprinkled throughout the text (one wishes for more!) and a dazzling bibliography. I believe this book will join the great biographies of Naval legends. This is a wonderful overview of a larger than life hero-an embodiment of "Honor-Courage-Committment".
