A Thrilling ride while getting to know the life of the enlisted men.
Mr. McHale¿s laughter filled, suspense thriller is a great read, I highly recommend to all, readers of non-fiction and fiction. I was born in 1964 and got a real kick out of Mr. McHale's setting up of the wider culture, what was going on outside of the sub, very evocative. However the real blast is the one-two punch of feeling like I got to know these guys, they're funny quirks, pranks, and their dedication to doing a difficult job, with the most complex machine of their time, at the highest levels of achievement.

A Great read for any age
This book is a great chronicle during a time that has very few honest moments. This book is for people who love good storytelling and want to know what the actual life of a seaman would have been like during the late 1960's. This book lets you know not only what was happening during the authors life but keeps you up to date on everything in america that was influencing the actions of society and the government. <BR/><BR/>While reading this book it felt as though I had sat down with the author and a some other members of the crew and asked...."What was it really like?". I feel that Gannon McHale has done a wonderful job of being so honest in his storytelling that you can see why so many crew members trusted him with their lives and their stories.
