About this title

Synopsis:

The best-selling novelist exposes the inner workings of the nuclear submarine, the core of America's nuclear arsenal, using previously unrevealed diagrams and photographs along with formerly top-secret information. 500,000 first printing. $200,000 ad/promo.

Review:

Never before seen by the general public: a rare glimpse inside a Los Angeles-class (SSN-688) nuclear submarine ... with Tom Clancy as your guide. Only the author of The Hunt for Red October could capture the reality of life aboard a nuclear submarine. Only a writer of Mr. Clancy's magnitude could obtain security clearance for information, diagrams, and photographs never before available to the public. Now, for the first time, every civilian can enter this top secret world and experience the drama and excitement of this stunning technological achievement.... the weapons, the procedures, the people themselves... the startling facts behind the fiction that made Tom Clancy a #1 bestseller.

Submarine includes:

  • Exclusive photographs, illustration, and diagrams
  • Mock war scenarios and weapons launch procedures
  • An inside look at life on board, from captain to crew, from training exercises to operations
  • The fascinating history and evolution of submarines
PLUS: Tom Clancy's controversial views on submariner tactics and training methods.
