There are a lot of books about submarines—not many have been written by submariners. Join veteran submariner Andrew Karam and the crew of the USS Plunger (SSN 595) as it goes up against the best of the Soviet Navy on an extended "special operation" in the waning days of the Cold War and find out what life at sea is really like.

What makes Karam's book unique is the authenticity that comes from an author who is a decorated veteran of the submarine service, coupled with the viewpoint of a fairly senior enlisted man who, with no particular ax to grind, simply calls it like he saw it. This is a book about living and working on a submarine—if you want to hear about submarine operations, tactics, and the sort of routine intelligence-gathering that every attack boat conducted every year then this is the book for you. And if you want to know what happens before and after the intelligence is gathered—what the meals are like, how submariners personalize their own minute corner of the boat, how a reactor is started up, and how to flush a submarine toilet—this is still the book for you!
