    Fiction Novel. Not worth the time.

    If you are at all interested in Submarines and their operation, this is not the book to read. It offers no insight and is written as a fiction. Having served aboard submarines, both diesel and nuclear, I was surprised to find out how bored I was. The actuality of a patrol was a hell of a lot more exciting. Borrow this book from a friend or check it out from the library. Little history, not intriguing, not very interesting writing.

    Awesome read

    A unique view of the Cold War that many probaly didn't realized existed. I am amazed at the daring these crews refer to as 'our duty'.

    Im a Submariner. Read this

    This book was absolutely fantastic. If you want to know what submariners do and why they are important, this is a must read. The book reads like a Tom Clancy novel. It is easy to read and very informative. I have been a submarine officer for 5 years and all I can say is that if you are interested in submarines, the cold war, or if you aspire to be a submariner, then this book is for you.

    Nicely told Cold War tale

    But this book could have prospered with some solid copy editing. For example, capitalizing things that needed it, such as Cold War. And submarines, to my knowledge, are always referred to by their crews as "boats," not "ships," as in aircraft carrier or destroyer. I think the author could also have included a bit about the Nuclear Triad, i.e., Navy craft like Polaris submarines, and the Air Force's Strategic Air Command (missiles and bombers). Why no reference to Thule, Greenland? Or Curtis Lemay?
