This remarkable work tells of the Navy in the Cold War. There is history, and adventure, on and under the water.
In 1945, at the end of WWII, the Navy is sending its soldiers home and decommissions most of its warships. And then, Stalin, a former ally, begins to make moves in Europe leading Churchill, worried about the Communists, to declare an iron curtain and the U.S. set out to establish military bases all over the world.
The Navy played a crucial role in that time of increasing tensions. Things were happening and they were at the forefront. The A-bomb tests, the science behind waging war and sonar, and the underwater battles with the submarine.
So much research went into this book. All of his books. He passed away writing this book. If you are interested in Naval History, this is the book for you!
