In the tradition of Jon Krakauer s Into Thin Air and Sebastian Junger s The Perfect Storm comes a true tale of riveting adventure in which two weekend scuba divers risk everything to solve a great historical mystery and make history themselves .
For John Chatterton and Richie Kohler deep wreck diving was more than a sport Testing themselves against treacherous currents braving depths that induced hallucinatory effects navigating through wreckage as perilous as a minefield they pushed themselves to their limits and beyond brushing against death more than once in the rusting hulks of sunken ships .
But in the fall of not even these courageous divers were prepared for what they found feet below the surface in the frigid Atlantic waters sixty miles off the coast of New Jersey a World War II German U boat its ruined interior a macabre wasteland of twisted metal tangled wires and human bones all buried under decades of accumulated sediment .
No identifying marks were visible on the submarine or the few artifacts brought to the surface No historian expert or government had a clue as to which U boat the men had found In fact the official records all agreed that there simply could not be a sunken U boat and crew at that location .
Over the next six years an elite team of divers embarked on a quest to solve the mystery Some of them would not live to see its end Chatterton and Kohler at first bitter rivals would be drawn into a friendship that deepened to an almost mystical sense of brotherhood with each other and with the drowned U boat sailors former enemies of their country As the men s marriages frayed under the pressure of a shared obsession their dives grew more daring and each realized that he was hunting more than the identities of a lost U boat and its nameless crew .
Author Robert Kurson s account of this quest is at once thrilling and emotionally complex and it is written with a vivid sense of what divers actually experience when they meet the dangers of the ocean s underworld The story of Shadow Divers often seems too amazing to be true but it all happened two hundred thirty feet down in the deep blue sea
