9781592287338: The Greatest Submarine Stories Ever Told: Dive! Dive! Fourteen Unforgettable Stories from the Deep

For decades, readers and filmgoers alike have found the drama of submarine stories to be compelling and irresistible: men locked in steel cocoons, fighting the sea, the enemy, even themselves. There are sea chases, submarine wolf packs stalking their prey, stunning and numbing depth-charge attacks, survival epics, miraculous rescues, and journeys of exploration. Submarine tales inherently are filled with action, adventure, and vivid portraits of
extraordinary skill and courage in the face of agonizing death beneath the waves.
The Greatest Submarine Stories Ever Told will bring readers, in a single book, some of the most engaging and illuminating prose ever put on paper about submarines. These twenty tales are not just about torpedo and depthcharge attacks, vivid as those are. They are also about feats of exploration, such as the Nautilus nuclear sub surfacing at the North Pole; unusual military feats like the German attack on British ships at Scapa Flow; and the courage and teamwork used to carry out operations when the odds of success and survival seemed nil.
The distinguished works excerpted will include, among others: Sharks and Little
Fish; Nautilus 90 North; Torpedo Junction, Homer Hickam Jr.’s superb account of battles with U-boats off the Atlantic Coast in 1942; and accounts of famous submarine tragedies such as the losses of America’s Thresher and Russia’s K-19.
For readers who like tales brisk with pace and action and the feel of challenging
the seven seas, The Greatest Submarine Stories Ever Told will be a much-anticipated new book.
