I am just finishing up H-571 by Max Allan Collins that is based on a motion picture screen play. It is a short and fun read. Submarine life is a bitch sometimes. JS. Papascull ;)

Speaking of a novel based on a screenplay, have you read Louis Lamour's "How The West Was Won"?

I usually think "okay, now I gotta read the book to see what the movies changed". In this case, I saw the movie, then later read the book, then later... while reading Mr. Lamour's memoirs... found out the movie came first.
