Overview

In 1969, U.S. Naval Commanders Tommy Carruther and Ned Sylvester are ordered to the United Kingdom to serve with the Royal Navy in their fight against the Irish Republican Army (IRA). They must assess the operational abilities of the Chariot, a manned, deadly weapon used by the Royal Navy to slip into anchorages and disable enemy ships. The Chariot is configured like a bicycle built for two crew members and will be used to make raids on shipboard weapons caches in the Republic of Ireland.

As the two commanders are deployed, a rogue submarine, the Red Dragon, arrives in the Irish Sea to assist the IRA in planning bomb attacks in London. A Chinese terrorist named Mark Hong, an intelligent and ruthless man with connections to several communist countries, commands the vessel, as ordered by Chairman Mao. Hong plans to help the IRA in their fight against the British. But will the British and Americans be able to thwart the plot and destroy the Red Dragon?

With action raging from the Isle of Man to the Republic of Ireland and the heart of London, Chariotfish: Submariners Battle the IRA is a fast-paced thriller, bursting with suspense and surprise.
