Descripton: A horror novel based on a Type VIIC on patrol in the Caribbean. Basically the U-boat gets trapped underwater and the crew are put under a curse by the local islanders. Forty or so years later a diver finds a metal cylinder in the sand which after a lot of uncovering becomes an unexploded depth charge. Of course he lets it fall and tries to get away when the ensuing explosion occurs and the night boat is jarred loose and rises to the surface. Originally published 1980.
