I was a Submarine Officer on a Fast Attack Sub at the time of this book and everything in the book rings true to me. Many times in books about submarines the story is exaggerated to make the story more exciting. That does not work for me the first untruth I read ruins the book for me and this book is most truthful.
It seems to me the author must have had a super relationship with an x-sub captain and the story rings as the facts and not some wild story. If you are interested in what it felt like to be on a Fast Attack Nuclear Submarine during the Cold War this book is for you.
Great job by the author!!

This was amazing. I am slowly working my way through all the major Cold War submarine ops books and this just happened to be toward the end of my list, simply due to it's short length. I almost didn't buy it at all due to this. I'm glad I changed my mind. This was a brilliant retelling of Holy Stone sub ops with nice technical detail and storytelling.
I really love how much of this book takes place on submarines and not from a boardroom or from the polished brass & teak furnished quarterdeck of an admiral's Carrier. Many exciting scenarios and vingettes about a brave type of warrior.
Great read, great listen, fantastic narrator, I loved this one.
