Overview

Taller in length than the Washington Monument, wider at its center than a three-lane highway, the 18,750-ton Trident nuclear submarine is the most complex war machine the United States Navy has ever produced: a $1.8 billion marvel crammed with more modern military technology than any other vessel in the world. Deep beneath the ocean it can sail for months, undetected by enemies.
Granted more access to one of these awesome submarines than any journalist before, bestselling author Douglas C. Waller penetrates the silent, secret world of nuclear subs, taking you on a tension-packed, three-month patrol under the Atlantic Ocean inside the U.S.S. Nebraska, fondly nicknamed Big Red. The Cold War may be over, but the U.S. Navy still has Tridents lurking in the oceans, always ready at a moment’s notice to unleash a nuclear Holocaust.
In chilling detail, witnessed through the eyes of the men on board and told in their own words, Big Red reveals the top-secret procedures for starting World War III, including secret codes, elaborate fail-safe mechanisms, and highly classified battle tactics for nuclear combat. It’s a ride you’ll never forget.

    Not recommended

    not as good as I had hoped. Little or no suspense and near the end all action was glossed over and rushed. Would not recommend to a sub sailer like myself.
