      The "last dive" of this book’s title refers to a incident in which two divers exploring the wreck of U-Who (later identified as U) died of decompression title itself is somewhat misleading; this book is more about diving in general than about this specific dive on a U-boat, and just as much about the author’s personal diving experiences as about the father-son team. In father-son diving duo - Chris and Chrissy Rouse - died tragically in an expedition to the recently discovered Second World War U-boat, the U-Who. Their deaths were the result of what divers dread most, decompression sickness, commonly called "the bends". In this book the author recreates this terrible event in an effort to understand it.

        You can’t remember when your last dive was. If your last dive was more than a decade ago, you may need more than just a refresher course. Fishman starts by asking folks how long it’s been since their last dive. “Then I ask about the time before they stopped diving. I ask them to estimate how many dives they had before they stopped. The first chapter ends as the men descend for their last dive. Then Chowdhury returns to and follows the Rouses (including wife and mother Sue, who trained with her men) as they learn to dive, becoming both highly skilled and obsessed.

      In media Books. Gary Gentile's self-published, non-fiction book Shadow Divers Exposed: the Real Saga of the U () challenges some of the facts about the sinking of U Gentile, a noted wreck diver, researcher, and author, sharply refutes Chatterton and Kohler's theory of how U sank. Gentile cites attack logs and eyewitness accounts from the crew of two destroyer escorts that. In , when it all seemed in vain, the two divers came up with a final plan, so dangerous that the book ends with this last dive.
