About this title

Synopsis:

A highly prized intelligence find rests on the bottom of Skagerrak Strait: a Soviet Golf II class submarine equipped with three nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. All that is needed is to find this needle in the haystack, lift a thirty-five hundred ton vessel from the ocean bottom unnoticed and secure it in a surface ship designed by the CIA for this purpose.  A near impossible task, nonetheless a band of U.S. submariners agree to take it on. 

About the Author:

Author D. M. Ulmer enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1947. In two-years, he was promoted to third class electronic technician onboard the submarine USS Clamagore. Six months later, he was advised he’d be transferred to the Naval Academy Prep School. When Ulmer asked his captain “why me?” the skipper replied facetiously, “I don’t think you’re smart enough to make second class and I need the bunk space!” Ulmer returned to Clamagore in 1967 as Commanding Officer. He then became one of a few, if not the only CO, to have served in an enlisted status and as commanding officer in the same warship. Captain Ulmer’s 32 year Navy Career included: 1949 German submarine U-2513; Given to the US Navy in 1945 as partial reparation for WWII.
