I received this book through a Goodreads online giveawayIn short this book is a collection of genuinely interesting and enlightening stories about cold war submarine history They are assembled in mostly chronological order from a variety of sources which included direct interviews with participants in the various events that are outlinedBecause of the high amount of jargon HAOJ and military acronym overload MAO I found myself referencing the index often to try to recall the meaning of previously decribed euipment and programs Therefore I would consider this of a military geek read definitely not for everyoneHowever I do enjoy history from the perspective of the man on the ground rather than from newspaper headlines and presidential transcriptsSome sections of the book perhaps strung together as they were to keep chronological continuity were thinner than other sections including the last chapter And the author s personal investment in some of the stories tended to lend importance to matters experienced by him and his family However in general it was an entertaining read
