Winning the Cold War is in the balance.
A super-secret, off-the-books spy organization; a security-clearance starting at top secret and going up from there; an attack by giant squid during a 1,000-foot dive while breathing an exotic gas; a cat's whisker escape from death during a three-day decompression - and that's just the first two chapters of Operation Ivy Bells before the action really gets underway.
Blending personal experience and real-world events in a fictional wrapping, Operation Ivy Bells offers a never-before-seen glimpse of these heroic men fearlessly facing death to gather the intel that tipped the scales to win the Cold War.

Near True Nautical Adventure Tale
Yes I would to some one who like this genre. The tale is a slightly fictionalized account of a true event during the cold war era.
I general I love historical novels especially good ones that don't re-write history and this novel fits that bill. I learned about a true naval operation that occurred during the cold war that I never before was aware of.
The LT Mac.
The award ceremony.
At first I was a bit bored with the book as the start was a bit slow and not action packed. However the book kept getting better. The book was well written and preformed and there is more action as the book progresses. Also the story is educational and informative. Not only did I learn about a cold war navel operation I also learned some nautical jargon and about low depth immersion diving. Such as the gasses used, the equipment, decompression and so forth. This may be a bit boring though for some one who is not into navel and driving stuff.
Over all the book was excellently written, educational, informative and entertaining. I think that it could make a good move that would be a far more realistic fact based tale than such movies as the 'mission impossible' films.
