About this title

Synopsis:

  EYES UNDER THE WATER

When Steve Waterman left home in 1964, he was looking for the most exciting job the U.S. Navy had to offer. So Waterman became an underwater photographer, joining an elite group that numbered only fifteen men in the entire navy--men always on call for unusual and interesting assignments.

Yet it was the time Waterman spent in Vietnam with Underwater Demolition Team-13 that deserves special respect. Existing in a state of adrenaline driven alertness, UDT-13 men carried out their harrowing missions. Stealthily, silently they crept through Vietnam's waterways, never knowing if the next bend in the river concealed VC patiently waiting to spring a fiery, murderous ambush.

Employing the wit and unvarnished honesty that got him into trouble more than once during his thirteen years in the navy, Waterman unfolds a compelling tale of an ordinary sailor who chose to serve his country during one of the most controversial, challenging times in its history.

Book Description:

"Written with humor, a wealth of detail, and some gripping combat scenes, Steven L. Waterman's memoir of his unique experience as a navy diver is a vivid, true picture of life in the Vietnam-era military."
--W. E. B. GRIFFIN
   New York Times bestselling author of Brotherhood of War
