Er and exploded with a roarThe stricken submarine shuddered and slowed its interior utterly still filled with water as the Sharkfin coasted downward on a long planing descent into the black seaIt was an unprovoked attack a deliberate act of aggression When Vice Admiral Mike Brannon of the US Navy received word that the wreck of the Sharkfin had been found with a gaping hole in its stern he could only conclude that the Soviets had without warning attacked and destroyed a US nuclear submarine He could not let the incident pass unretaliated Yet whatever steps he took he risked leading the two superpowers into a state of war If he informed the President it might take weeks for Congress to take action — too long Whatever response.

    MOBI Harry Homewood ¹ ¹ Torpedo PDF à torpedo free, Torpedo MOBIThis is the last book of a trilogy about submarines Unlike most of Homewood’s books which were about World War II submarines this book is about the Cold War Homewood is well educated about the Silent Service and has written many books on the subject But I felt the plot of this story was a bit unrealistic; that being said I did enjoy the book I found it

    MOBI Harry Homewood ¹ ¹ Torpedo PDF à torpedo free, Torpedo MOBIVery interestingWith few exceptions this story could have happened US Attack Submarines have been shadowing g Russian sea craft since at least the 60's Ours have always been slightly ahead of them in tech firms stealth and detection Interesting note that other than the USS Thresher in 1962 and the USS Scorpion in 1968 we have not lost a boat Neither of them released an ounce of radiation Admiral Rickover lived long enough to see the 100th nuke boat commissioned Never a Boat Skipper always an engineer Very peronavBlend to white hats and tough as nails on his officers there were many Ricky Rejects serving on fleet boats The interaction between fore and aft was real An attack had two crews and pretty much separated aboard and definitely on liberty We called the glow worms Recommend this book to any devotee of WWII and cold war history

    MOBI Harry Homewood ¹ ¹ Torpedo PDF à torpedo free, Torpedo MOBIUnfortunately despite the author's previous two books being pretty good this third book is another book where I found the main premise to be completely unbelievable That really made the whole story not work for me so I didn't enjoy this book The writing was OK but the characters weren't particularly well drawn so sometimes I had a difficult time trying to keep track of who was who I wouldn't really recommend this
